This is #5 in the continuation of abstract beach paintings begun in 1988.  Another sunny day at the beach in San Diego, California. Ocean sparkles, sand and sun.

Recently I found myself wondering why a painting should be framed and hung on a wall. So I decided to try something else and wrapped this painting around a glass vase as its support. In this way, one might say the glass IS the frame.  

Although it was not meant to be functional art, it could be, functioning as a vase, umbrella stand or?

Beach 5 is one of eight pieces I took to SDAI for the coming semi-annual C-Note Show.
