Preview of The Key to Paradise Collection: Abstract watercolor Seascapes

Be Back in a Minute 5 x 7 inches

The Key to Paradise Collection

I am beyond excited to share a little preview of the “Key to Paradise Collection.” It will be ready to head out into the world TOMORROW at 12:00 pm EST.

Just the name of this little seascape collection makes me feel good! It was inspired by the carefree moments we all seek. I started it while visiting Aruba last February. The island inspired me with its vibrant color, extraordinary sunsets, soft white sand, and turquoise waters that literally took my breath away.

I was reminded once again how beautiful, diverse and magical this world we live in is. I bookmarked this energy in my soul and tried to capture my appreciation and feelings with paint.


All of the paintings in this sweet little collection are meant to awaken the intoxicating feeling of freedom that comes when you are on your own time. Although we can’t physically get away whenever we want we can allow our minds to escape to beautiful places. May this collection let you “put the world away for a minute” to replenish and recharge.

Never Been So Happy 5 x 7 inches

There are twelve 5″ x 7″ and four 8″ x 10-inch original watercolor paintings in this collection. Each one small and intimate, perfect for a little nook or a shelf where they can serve as a reminder to pause, take a breath and center yourself.

Change Your Geography, 5 x 7 inches

Champagne Shore 5 x 7 inches
Sunshine’s Gonna Wash My Blues Away, 8 x 10 inches

Tides, 8 x 10 inches
Lose Yourself, 5 x 7 inches
Minds on a Permanent Vacation, 5 x 7 inches

Just Beachy

Some paintings in this collection have hints of tropical colors that speak to the liveliness of life while others are more serene and peaceful, like having a quiet beach all to yourself.

They are the perfect reminder that life is meant to be enJOYed. I hope you will find something that speaks to you that will add a little pop of color to your home.

Thanks for taking the time to celebrate with me! You can view the whole collection in the shop tomorrow!

xo, Laura 🙂

p.s. This song inspired the titles of all the paintings in the collection. It makes me feel happy, light and free! 🙂


Gonna put the world away for a minute
Pretend I don’t live in it
Sunshine gonna wash my blues away
Had sweet love but I lost it
She got too close so I fought it
Now I’m lost in the world tryin’ to find me a better way

Wishin’ I was
Knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky, breeze and it don’t seem fair
The only worry in the world
Is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sunrise, there’s a fire in the sky
Never been so happy
Never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

Wrote a note, said “Be back in a minute”
Bought a boat and I sailed off in it
Don’t think anybody’s gonna miss me anyway
Mind on a permanent vacation
The ocean is my only medication
Wishin’ my condition ain’t ever gonna go away ‘Cause now…
