Isle of No Sorrow, Big Sur


Isle of No Sorrow, Big Sur

from 50.00

The word Nepenthe itself means "Isle of No Sorrow". During the lengthy road closure of 2017, with Nepenthe cut off both to the north and to the south, life was experienced as though on an island. Erin painted this luminous oil painting at dawn one quiet morning during the closure. She has made the image available as a special keepsake of life here during this extraordinary time. This archival edition gives friends at home and faraway a tangible way to support Nepenthe's commitment to serving the Big Sur community during the road closure, and a way to celebrate the awesome, natural beauty of this amazing place.

This limited edition fine art print is produced in Erin's studio to her specifications. They are printed on watercolor paper using a process that will last a lifetime. The print size (11x14” or 16x20”) is the outside paper dimension. The image size is approximately 8x10" or 16x12" for the two print sizes.
