Oil on Canvas; 20×16

I've always loved tropical scenes with small boats rocking back in forth in the shallow shoreline. Going through my reference photos, I found a few that I fell in love with. I used one mainly but changed the colors around and made the small boat sit as if waiting to go on an adventure.

About Taylor Nichczynski

Life would never be the same once I moved from my home state of Michigan to Nevada in 1996. I started having in interest in art most noticeably at the age of six. After being enrolled into an art class after school at the age of eight I grew more fond of the process of creation. Art work helped me build up my confidence as a child and help deal with the hardships I faced when I was young.

Throughout high school I was involved in the art field. I had my work   shown in the school art shows as well. It always warms my heart when my hard work is appreciated. I am a self taught artist that continues to grow daily with the advice from others and my own adventures in creation. The goal I have, anytime I begin the creation process I always have one specific mission. To create what I view, not what everyone else views. It is an adventure everyday!
I have been taking commission pieces and selling my portfolio work since the spring of 2011 and enjoy seeing satisfied customers. In June of 2012 I had a small ad featured in Southwest Art Magazine, giving my confidence more of a boost to see my name in print. That move was a huge one for any up and coming artist and I am proud to have been involved is such a beautiful magazine.
Since April of 2013 I have had the honor of working with a wildlife sanctuary Imlay, NV; Safe Haven Rescue Zoo. I have pieces displayed on site and had a few sell on their property along with a silent auction they hosted in May of 2013. They take in animals that have been neglected and abused by owners, changing the lives of many. It's a passion of mine to save wildlife with my work and hope to continue to do so.
