Siesta Key Artwork by Shawn McLoughlin
I have a number of my original paintings that are available for purchase. I have a limited number of watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings. Some of these paintings are 20 years or older and some are much more recent. These original paintings range in sizes from 8″ x 10″ up to a 48″ x 60″ oil abstract and a 24″ x 96″ panoramic beachscape. Some are ready to hang and others could be matted and framed to fit your taste and decor.
Giclée (zhee-klay) prints are fine art reproductions that are printed on a state-of-the-art inkjet printer, using archival inks, archival canvas and fine art paper. Giclée prints are available in sizes from 8″ x 10″ to 36″ x 48″. The 8″ x 10″ paper giclée prints make excellent Siesta Key gifts and souvenirs. The framed paper giclée prints and the 1.5″ deep, wrapped canvas giclées make attractive wall art for residential and commercial spaces.
I paint interior and exterior murals. I will be happy to listen to your mural ideas and discuss them with you. I will provide you with a computer visualization of the completed wall, before we begin, without obligation to proceed. On-time completion is guaranteed. Attention and care is given to the choice of the finest materials to ensure maximum beauty and longevity. Your mural will look good for many years to come. Transform your interior or exterior wall with a custom painted mural. No wall is too small or too big. Exceptional quality at a reasonable price.
The process of commissioning a portrait is simple and convenient. We can discuss the most appropriate portrait medium and style, taking into consideration your preferences, time frame, and budget. No matter what medium you choose, you can expect exceptional quality. I will also provide assistance with framing, presentation, and installation of your completed portrait.
I enjoy making videos of my artwork, especially time-lapse videos that show progress over a period of time. For a complete collection of my videos, in addition to art videos, visit my Siestashawn YouTube Channel

Oil Portrait Painting
Feb 27, 2014
This is an oil portrait on linen canvas measuring 22″ x 28″. I started by drawing everything with a charcoal pencil. I then did a loose oil wash to block in the main colors. I then layered dozens of thin color glazes until I achieved a very realistic portrait painting.
I’ve lived in Sarasota, FL since 1968. I graduated from Sarasota High School in 1971 and Ringling College of Art and Design in 1975. I have two successful sons that are each married and have wonderful families. I am also very proud to have two granddaughters and three grandsons.
I’ve made my living, full-time, as a fine artist painter, since 1983. I now enjoy painting more than ever before, painting more for pleasure than for income. I live very modestly, in my painting studio, only 10 minutes from Siesta Key Beach, the #1 rated, best beach in the U.S.
The image on the far left is from 2012. The video on the left was shot in 2006. I sure looked a lot younger then! Oh well, time flies when you’re having fun. 🙂
