Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. We celebrate a country where we can live freely, on the shoulders of those who, with wisdom and courage, fought for our freedoms before us.
I ran across this verse in my reading this week. It is a much welcomed reminder. I hope it encourages you to go after your future with confidence, pursuing your purpose with hope and joy.
CP Coastal has just released its 2017 Fall / Holiday collections. Featured below is the Fall Palms collection, which celebrates a variety of palm tree icons and patterns in shades of brilliant reds, yellows, and golds. The Nautical Christmas collection keeps things simple with a classic sailboat icon and coordinating patterns of deep blues and holly berry red. The Let's Get Lit collection is ready to party. It showcases traditional Christmas tree lights with a family of deep sea fish, a Christmas palm tree, and a splash of humor. We've also thrown in two Everyday collections. The Just Be You collection, featuring sea creatures with pretty patterns of calming blues and cheerful greens, is meant to inspire you to just be who you are; you don't owe anyone an explanation. And finally, the Off the Grid collection is for those of us who love finding a perfect stretch of sand and chillaxing with a cold one, on a beautiful island... somewhere south.
If you are interested in viewing all of the Fall/Holiday collections, please contact CP Coastal through our Contact Page. We look forward to talking with you!
I first listened to the iconic Beach Boys' song, "I Wish They All Could Be California Girls" sung by David Lee Roth (lead singer of one of the the best rock and roll bands in my opinion, Van Halen), during my high school years in the early 80's, back in a small farm town in Ohio. Little did I know back then, that ten years later I would become a California girl. And even way lesser known back then, did I know I would become an artist championing nostalgic coastal art, heavily inspired by The Beach Boys. The Beach Boys' music embodies coming of age exhilarating feelings of freedom, the beach, and first time love. Their music is timeless and a continual source of inspiration for my art.
Tonight I watched the documentary movie (on Showtime) entitled The Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds. I was blessed to have seen the 50th anniversary concert of the 1966 Pet Sounds album performed live (with Beach Boy master mind, and musical genius Brian Wilson, along with Beach Boy Al Jardine) at the Hollywood Bowl in 2016.
The Beach Boys, through their music, have truly created the essence of Americana, and the embodiment of the California Dream. And that dream lives on forever...
CPCoastal recently featured in Art Buyer Magazine news. Art Buyer Magazine is a premier industry publication featuring the top licensing and art brands in the world. "I'm thrilled to be leading the expansion of coastal art across a rapidly increasing number of product offerings," comments Christine Barker, Owner/Designer CPCoastal brand.
Is everybody hanging in there? Its been a rough winter. We're incredibly thankful for the rain here in Southern California and looking forward to a fun Summer. We just released four Summer Collections. We harkened back to mid-century modern Hollywood swim glamour for one collection; ventured off to a no shoes beach bar for another; got a little dreamy with silhouette palms for the third; and rounded out the fourth collection with Live Love Sail. Here's a couple samples. If you are interested in having our designs on your products, we'd love to hear from you.
