Inspired by the landscapes and seascapes of California, John Bucklin paints every day and surfs as much as he can. He finds beauty in the simplicity of ordinary objects like sand dollars, soft serve ice cream, avocados. He also handcrafts raw wooden frames, adding to the artful imperfection of each piece. His work sells out almost immediately on Serena and Lily so I got in touch with Bucklin directly to buy the sand dollar painting above. This soft serve ice cream painting is next on the list.
