"TRANQUILITY BELOW" by KAREN WILES
"TRANQUILITY" has been featured in MARIN MAGAZINE of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA for the last year!
A hypnotic, fascinating under pier work of art displaying rolling beach waves and tones of Caribbean aqua waters with an almost 3D effect. Pilings of rust golden tones transcending into the cool, magical, and inviting tranquil waters of Wiles award winning "Tranquility Below."
"Tranquility Below" was shot underneath a pier in Grand Case, on the French side of St. Maarten in the Eastern Caribbean. There were many of the island's beautiful children playing and running atop this pier and diving into the waters below. I witnessed lots of laughter, fun and an abundance of happy smiles. I walked underneath to find this beautiful, hypnotic mood of tranquility with her vintage golden columns holding all the fun above and "Tranquility Below" was captured for a moment in time to be cherished always...
This particular piece has won many art awards and still remains to be Mrs. Wiles most popular work. It is also available in a horizontal image entitled "Pillars of Time" which can also be found on her website along with five other images in the particular series of images titled "The Tranquility Series" in her online gallery. The "Tranquility" artwork is currently published in Marin magazine in the wine valley area near San Francisco...
Saint Martin (French: Saint-Martin; Dutch: Sint Maarten) is an island in the northeast Caribbean...
