The Restricted 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.

Excellent print quality. I expected to lose some detail with it being printed on cloth. To my surprise, you could even make out the model's beautiful blue eyes. I would/have ordered again

Artist's Description

This is one of fifteen paintings in my Chakra Rainbow Oil Painting Series. Each painting depicts a state of balance or imbalance in the human energy field.

This painting represents artist block, stagnation and restriction. The figure chained to an unseen force tries to touch a painting just out of her reach.
