THE LIVE AUCTION FINE ART SELECTION:
This is a cause that's close to the artist's heart. For The Ocean Institute's LIVE AUCTION, The Breck Rothage Fine Art Studio is bringing out the favorite from last year's Festival of the Arts in Laguna Beach – Watercolor Wall at 6 ft. x 3 ft. – with the artwork infused to high-grade aluminum.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK UP FOR AUCTION:
Name: Watercolor Wall – by Breck Rothage Fine Art
Starting Bid: $3,500
Watercolor Wall by Breck Rothage Fine Art is a 6 ft. x 3 ft. fine artwork infused to the highest-grade aluminum canvas available – made to last a lifetime. Starting bid is $3,500 with a value of $5000. The Breck Rothage Fine Art Studio is a proud supporter of The Ocean Institute through this fine art donation of Watercolor Wall to support marine and maritime educational programs.
Watercolor Wall is part of The Impressions Collection and was created purely in-camera. Breck's techniques and craftsmanship rely on motion and light, rather than post processing tools. The results are the true-to-nature colors of the saltwater as it changes with the seasons, shimmers in the ambient light, and carves out beauty in motion with the barrel of the wave. Breck's fine artwork presents at 6 ft. like a window to the shore rather than an aluminum canvas on a wall.
Watercolor Wall was created at Cylinders at The Wedge in Newport Beach. It captures one of those perfect moments. Framed at the top with the deep blue of the sea and touches of frothy, salty foam, painted in motion for a soul nourishing view the winner of the LIVE AUCTION will love to live with.
Last but not least, the auction winner will also receive delivery and traditional wall installation anywhere within Orange County, plus a professional art lighting consultation to make this work come alive to captivate the room.

For the SILENT AUCTION, a lucky winner will get to select one of the following fine artworks valued at $1,450 – $1495 by Breck to take home:
