On October 29, 2012 New Jersey and much of the North East was hit by the worst storm in a century, Hurricane "Super Storm" Sandy.
Shore towns were devastated and Atlantic City was one of them. Most of the world’s playground went underwater. Local artist Donna Elias, like so many others, was not spared Mother Nature’s wrath. Five feet of water flowed down the street fronting Donna’s bay front workshop and studio. Tragically, hundreds of Donna’s sketches and original paintings went under the encroaching salt water. The Governor closed the city, so there they sat for four long days drying out, being preserved by nature.
Remarkably, when Donna was finally allowed back to her studio, some of the paintings that hadn’t floated away or been eaten by crabs were still beautiful to behold - however changed by the salt water soaking.
Now, the artist would like to present you with the opportunity to own one of these “Salt-Watercolors” at a fraction of their original cost. Each is a one of a kind original painting by Donna Elias, altered in some way by Mother Nature herself. Each painting comes with a signed and dated certificate of authenticity by Donna Elias.
Each painting comes Framed at no additional charge in an 11" x 14" Glass and Wood "Float Frame." Presenting Donna Elias' SALT WATERCOLORS TM
