Quiet Contemplation Beach Towel





Image Size



Our luxuriously soft beach towels are made from brushed microfiber with a 100% cotton back for extra absorption.   The top of the towel has the image printed on it, and the back is white cotton.   Our beach towels are available in two different sizes: beach towel (32" x 64") and beach sheet (37" x 74").

Don't let the fancy name confuse you... a beach sheet is just a large beach towel.

Care Instructions

Machine wash cold and tumble dry with low heat.

So disappointed with the quality of the towel. Not only was the towel cheap, the graphics were horrible. Do not buy! I returned mine.

July 17th, 2019

I love the authenticity of the image, a lot of images are cartoony. This is a perfect rendition of gorillas. Love it!

July 14th, 2019

I was so impressed by Stuart’s uniquely beautiful and well composed images. His ability to capture these rare and amazing natural moments truly seem to be his gift. I look forward to purchasing more of these spectacular images and can barely wait to see what is yet to come. Given the fast paced, impersonal, wifi based society we are currently living in, it is deeply gratifying to be reminded of the other creatures we share this planet with.

This was a purchased as a gift and was GORGEOUS! The recipient and I loved it! Looked just like the web photo :)

July 6th, 2019

Crap, crap, crap. Looked like I bought it at the lowest quality outlet store.

Sent it back and it was expensive to do so. Never seen such poor quality. They should be embarrased to sell something like that.

Artist's Description

Delicate and strong, garden flowers yield to a gentle, meditative touch. Quiet Contemplation, the artwork, invites the viewer to step into this garden – which is an abstract, impressionist sort of place – and listen to the sounds of spring: there is the gentle breeze that whispers past one’s face; there is the buzzing hum of insects; there is the chirp of the song bird. And in some gardens, hopefully not too close to the song bird, there is the family cat, brushing up against one’s legs and mewing. But the overall sounds are peaceful ones, quiet ones, sounds of tranquility that inspire one to simply be. It is enough to simply look at the flowers, to gently brush them with one’s fingers, to marvel at their shape, their smell, their fragility which also incorporates a certain toughness because flowers, after all, spend their lives outside, in the elements. Quiet Contemplation reminds us that life needs just that – quiet and contemplation – because we live in a society t...

About Steve Henderson

I am a fine art painter who creates representational images celebrating light, life, and color. A commercial illustrator for more than 20 years, I have been painting for most of my life, and in the last 10 years have focused exclusively on fine art. I focus on images that invite the viewer to step into the artwork and experience a sense of joy, peace, freedom, encouragement, meditation, and thought. There's a lot of angry art out there, as well as a lot of shallow pop. I choose to use the abilities and experience I have to promote beauty and goodness.
