An Imperfect Compass, vol.1


Looking for tropical beach wall art? You’ve come to the right place.

On a grassy hill overlooking a bay of a fantastic tropical archipelago, lush palm trees stand silhouetted against a stunning view. Just across the warm, turquoise water, a mysterious Tiki Bar stands atop a rocky column connected to another island by an ancient rocky bridge. Scary to cross? Maybe. Worth it? Absolutely.

This painting is part of the Max Mahalo Archipelago Series.
