Joy ParksCoats "Sunrise on the Coast"
Original Acrylic Painting 36 X 18 X .8

"This expressionist painting was inspired by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean
where I live.  The contrast of light against dark is meant to highlight the
brightness of the sun in the morning. 
The acrylic paint was applied heavily with a pallet knife and finished with a
satin varnish."

Artist Statement 

A native of Raleigh, NC, Joy Parks, began her art career as a small child when, as a fourth grader, she won her first blue ribbon in a county-wide art exhibition.  Later, her high school art teacher encouraged her to become an art major in college. Joy took her teacher's advice and attended East Carolina University School of Art in Greenville, NC. In 2013 Joy married James Coats and moved to Carolina Beach. Even while she lived in Raleigh and Greenville, Joy loved painting art with a nautical theme.  Moving to the coast has given her even more inspiration to paint nautical art. She also loves to travel, especially to places in the Caribbean where palm trees, sail boats,  and other nautical themes abound. Joy loves palm trees swaying in the tropical breezes, sunrises and sunsets over the salt marshes, waves crashing on the shore. It is her hope that her paintings evoke a pleasant memory or give a feeling of peaceful and calm tranquility to the viewer.
