The Perfect Totally Unique Anna Maria Island Gift
We’ve discovered a totally unique and perfect Anna Maria Island souvenir to take home from your next visit. It’s not just for the rich and famous, you can get a beach painting featuring your family from a professional local artist! This art will surely be the most treasured souvenir from your trip to our magical island.
Discover our local Anna Maria Island artist, Cory Wright, who enjoys painting outdoors, a term known as "en plein air," and the beach is her favourite muse! With her "portable studio," consisting of a collapsable easel, travel paintbox and umbrella, all tucked in her backpack, Cory can often be found outside from one end of the island to the other capturing the beautiful effects of light and shadow on the land and sea around her. She’s one of our favourite artists.
Prices of Custom Oil Paintings
In addition to showing her paintings at The Studio at Gulf and Pine Gallery in the village of Anna Maria, Cory is currently offering on-site custom plein air beach paintings featuring families. The base price for an (unframed) 8x10 oil on linen is $300 and typically takes about 2 hours to complete. An 11x14 is $500 and larger sizes are, of course, available as well.
A custom beach oil painting would make a great "beach wedding" gift too! If you'd like to commission a custom beach painting with your family as the subject, or have a painting done of your favourite spot on the island, a beach house portrait, etc.
Contact Cory at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to schedule a day/time. Cory maintains a studio/ fine art gallery just a short drive away in Palmetto at 419 10th Ave W. and welcomes visitors. As she is often outdoors working, it's best to call and make an appointment, 813-758-7057.
Archived pieces can be viewed online at her website, www.corywrightart.com and recent paintings may be seen on her blog, www.corywrightart.blogspot.com. She is on Facebook as "Cory Wright, Fine Artist" and on Instagram as @CoryWrightArt.
