The second biggest piece of the Coral Reef Collection and sister to Caledonia. Contoy was created using flat brushes and broad strokes. The accents of lime green and gold mimic the way sunlight might dance across the coral on the sea floor. This piece is finished with marks using gold and black oil pastels.
About the Collection: The colors in the Coral Reef collection are representative of the colors we know and love of coral reefs. Coral are bright and colorful because of microscopic algae called zooxanthellae. However, as a result of climate change, the oceans are warming, and a change in water temperature—as little as 2 degrees Fahrenheit—can cause coral to drive out the colorful algae. This phenomenon is called coral bleaching. In some instances, corals can recover from bleaching if conditions return to normal, and stay that way. That’s why a percentage of all sales from this collection will be donated to an organization working to save Coral Reefs.
