db Waterman Profile picture "Nostalgic Shores” is a visual journey to a 1970's summer day. Bathed in shades of yellow and aqua green, the collage blends the vibrant atmosphere of a vintage beach with elements of retro forms, old vintage photos and checkered paper.

In the foreground, the beach is buzzing with activity. Families sit under umbrellas, their blankets spread out on the sand. Children build sandcastles at the water's edge.
Adults lounge on beach chairs, chatting and enjoying the warm sun. A couple plays with a beach ball, their movements calm and unhurried. The ocean, serene aqua green, stretches into a light aqua yellowish sky that creates a peaceful backdrop.

The checkered paper, slightly worn, adds a touch of authenticity

“Nostalgic Shores” captures the essence of a simpler time, when the days were long and the beach was an oasis of relaxation and pleasure. The collage invites viewers to go back in time, to a place where memories were made and the sea offered endless possibilities.

This sunny retro collage beach artwork was created with old pieces of reports and forms, scraps of old checkered paper and old photos layered on top of each other.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
