Artist's description:

I've been a little obsessed recently with starry skies and I've been having fun creating different night skies on various sizes of canvas to use either as the backdrop for landscape paintings or animal art and now, this one which is altogether a little more surreal.

A recent holiday snap of a boat floating on the clear blue Mediterranean inspired this painting but I decided to have it floating amongst the stars rather than in the ocean. I chose the title because I like the idea that this planet of ours is really just like a little boat floating in the vast ocean of space.

I've used various types of acrylic paint for this painting - fine art spray paint for the background, acrylic paint pens and regular acrylic paint out of a tube for the boat and the milky way.

The canvas is a small deep box canvas which does not need to be framed and can either sit upright on a shelf or hang as it is on the wall. You could also choose to have it framed in a floating frame which a recent customer did and which looks really good.

As you can see from the photos, my signature is on the side of the canvas but there isn't an option for that when listing the painting!
