New Series Coming Soon: Curacao Dreams

Continuing with my theme of revisiting past dive trips (because who knows when I will be able to travel again), my newest series is devoted to the time I spent in Curacao back in 2015. During my very first dive trip in Cozumel in 2011, I met an incredible dive instructor who I credit for…

Cozumel Series Release

Since I’m currently between trips, I decided to focus my latest series on a special place in my heart that I scuba dived at in both 2011 and 2015: Cozumel, Mexico. The original paintings in part 1 are inspired by the infamous drift dives there, and they are all acrylic enamel on 12″ x 36″…

Kona Series Release: Part 2

With Christmas around the corner, I am releasing 6 new paintings for my Kona 2019 Series. The sizes of the paintings are 12″ x 36″ and 18″ x 36.” It has been pretty cold at my warehouse of a studio lately, so I am taking a wee break from painting until it warms up a…

Kona Series Release: Part 1

I have officially released my new series inspired by my time in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, back in August 2019. All 7 original abstract paintings are on canvas and they are ready to hang. I am planning to release several more pieces before I complete this series. For these first few paintings, I am particularly excited about…

BAHAMAS, CHAPTER 3: Bimini

“Have you heard of Ferrari and Lamborghini?” Antonio asked, as his machete sank into the half-frozen tuna carcass. “Uh…yes.” “That’s where I’m from. Modena. My family makes balsamic vinegar.” The thought of balsamic vinegar drizzled on cherry-tomato bruschetta temporarily lulled me away from the smell of decomposing fish guts. I had eaten nothing but chicken…

New Bahamas Series Release

I am now releasing my new series inspired by my time in the Bahamas back in February 2019. All 9 original abstract paintings are on canvas. Message Me on Facebook or e-mail me at meganwillisart@gmail.com if you would like more information about a piece. I also posted the new paintings to my store at the…

BAHAMAS, CHAPTER 2: Exuma

From the plane’s window, I watched the imposing clouds of New Providence island morph into carefree clouds that hovered above the unending Exuma cays. The sapphire blue ocean transformed into neon turquoise with patches of exposed bright white sand. The islands appeared flat and deserted. Each time we passed over an island, I assumed we…

BAHAMAS, CHAPTER 1: Nassau

As the plane descended into cloud-checkered Nassau, pine trees waved from the runway. “Is this normal weather for February?” I asked the taxi driver as I watched the Bahamian sky darken. “Eh…the seas aren’t usually this rough. No boats went out today.” I shrugged, “Well, I’m here, so…” It was hard for me not to…

IN THE STUDIO: Packaging Paintings

Since I sell my original abstract paintings exclusively online and ship them all over the United States, I think it is important to explain my packaging process. As an artist, there is nothing I fear more than if my clients excitedly opened up a box, only to discover a damaged painting. I buy online too…

COCOS SERIES: New Red and Gold Paintings

These next 4 paintings in progress are my homage to the most heart-pumping dive sites of Cocos Island located at Isla Manuelita. I used reds, golds, oranges, and bronzes (mix of sparkly metallics, pearls, and solids) on canvas to convey my emotions while diving. The Manuelita mini-series is numbered 1-4 to match the order in…
