“High Seas” 8 x 10 Original oil on linen by Ron Nicolaides.

 

The  Pacific coast is the predominant subject of Nicolaides’ paintings. With years of study and experience, Ron Nicolaides  has become a powerful accomplished artist. He has captured majestic landscapes and has mastered the mesmerizing translucent waves in his depiction of the sea without freezing its energetic rhythms. His strength is his capacity to push the limits of oils and multiply glazes to create the masterful works that bring the viewer right into the scene.

About the illuminating art wood display:

Hand made and hand-finished lighted display stands for art glass and other translucent objects.  Each display is solid natural wood, textures and colors are unique.  Finishes include cherry, maple and walnut. High-intensity LED lights (without the need of batteries)  emphasize the intricate details of art and objects – much like a fine p[picture frame.  LED bulbs last up to ten years.  “Investing in art is spiritually and emotionally rewarding,” Andrew Nelson.

 

About the painted glass jewelry:

Pouring paint into glass is the artist’s favorite medium because of the bright color mixing.  The Northwest artist creates colorful  drippings, reminiscence of ocean waves and skies, to make one-of-a-kind  personal jewelry.   “I hope you enjoy my art, as much as I enjoyed creating it,” Tanya Gardner

Editor Gwendolyn Shearman of U.S. News Travel said her team initiates the process by selecting destinations from throughout the world. They score each destination in 11 different categories.

For rankings such as the Best Summer Vacations and the Best Summer Vacations in the USA, editors also factor in the seasonality of a destination and when the best time to visit is for the everyday traveler. Rankings are based on user ratings and editors’ scores, from 0 to 5 — “phenomenal.”

Editors apply these ratings to categories including sights, culture, people, food, shopping, family, nightlife, adventure, romance and accessibility. Destinations’ overall scores are a weighted average of the individual editors’ averages, based on which factors users said were most important to them.

This is the first year Seaside has been included in the scoring, Shearman said, receiving high marks in the sights, family, food and accessibility categories.

“Seaside stood out this year because of its appeal to both beach-going families and outdoor enthusiasts. Plus, its location in the Pacific Northwest is a great alternative to more well-known (and more crowded) beach destinations further south.”

 

In 2018, editors have found readers are particularly interested in visiting more under-the-radar vacation spots and smaller towns in the United States, she said. “More of those types of vacations appearing on many of our ranking lists.”

In Seaside, all you have to do is take a leisurely stroll along the Prom on a clear  morning  to place the city high on your own list. We’re proud to have our home named among the finest in the world.
