The ocean has so many different moods and colors. Water’s color comes only through reflection and refraction. When the sky is clear and the water is glassy you can see brilliant blues like these.
Nautical Shops is pleased
and proud to present Christopher Reid’s original works that were inspired by
his time on the Carolina coast.

early age. He studied fine art at The
Savannah College Of Art And Design and UNC-Wilmington. He trained in all media, but currently
favors pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal. Christopher Reid

“I am passionate about art,
enjoy the act of creation, and hope to help people who view my artwork
appreciate the beauty already around them. Too many people stumble through life
without enjoying nature. Art is a form of communication and it is as important
what you say as how you say it. I am an optimist at heart and I choose to use
my art to talk about beauty. Since nature provides the inspiration for art, I
enjoy painting en plein air so that I can be out in nature and incorporate all
the senses into my paintings and better communicate an experience of the place."
