Float On

Featuring a turtle floating along without a worry, the artwork reminds us not to fret over our journey through life, but to float with the waves and embrace whatever lies ahead. Made in Dallas, Texas. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

“My wish is for each painting to capture the freedom and vitality of nature in unexpected ways.”

Sarah Janece Garcia expresses her admiration for the natural world via heavily saturated watercolor paintings. Using a style that ranges from literal to abstract, Sarah's work is influenced by her passion for art in all forms, attraction to color, and adoration for nature's untamed splendor. "Nature's beauty enriches my soul and brings me comfort and happiness at the precise moment I need it," she says. "I feel very strongly that when I show love and respect for nature, nature always returns the favor."
