Summer is a magical time full of anticipation and fulfillment. Who you spend the summer with makes it all the more special. Poets and singers have given us tales of summer love, summer breeze, and lazy days of summer. The first days of summer are the most joyful. I grew up in a warm climate where it felt like summer most of the year. I remember hot nights and warm mornings. Nothing compares to the feeling that you can go anywhere and do anything and not worry about the weather. Art collectors may appreciate an original fine art nude photograph that captures this feeling.

A figure that is not aligned with the vertical or horizontal edge of the picture is a nod to nonconformity. Her nudity is obscured by the folds of the water, making a vivid statement that is not too provocative for the living room. The inevitabilities of the flow life are reflected in the ripples over her body.

This original fine art nude photograph is distinct for several reasons: the square format, the angled composition, and the obscured nudity. Ava swims leisurely amidst sparkling ripples. The diagonal composition is electric in its energy invoking feelings of summer whimsy.

The predominant colors in this artwork’s pallet are intense blues and turquoise. These colors dip into dark tones near the top of the image, where the appear almost black. The figure, in peachy hues, glows in contrast to the darker colors that surround her.

This composition was featured in the Saatchi Art print catalog and was a quick favorite, sold to collectors in New York City, Alaska, North Carolina, Atlanta, Spain, and London.
