This photograph was taken at the north end of Figure Eight Island in Wilmington North Carolina. The inlet is called Rich Inlet or Rich's Inlet (locals refer to it as both), and is a favorite gathering spot especially on weekends. It is obviously quite picturesque and peaceful, not to mention a perfect spot for sand dollar hunting! (We only keep the ones that have already turned gray or white.) Accessible only by boat (or on foot for Figure 8 Island residents), it's an amazing destination and only minutes from a local Wilmington dock to this paradise.

Imagine this as part of your beach decor, no matter where you're located! Take the beauty of the beach and the serenity of the water and make it part of your coastal wall art collection. 

Choose either (1) canvas gallery wrap, (2) metal, or (3) 1/4" acrylic.


(1) Gallery wraps are considered high-end wall art due to their giclée printing process. This image will be printed on fine art canvas material, then wrapped around a 1.5" wooden stretcher frame with wire or sawtooth mounting attached.


(2) Metal prints are printed on a 1/16" aluminum sheet and include a float mount on the back.


(3) This image is printed directly onto a 1/4" acrylic surface with a layer of white screen print on the back for translucent effect. Includes French Cleat mounting system on back of the print.

Please inquire about custom sizes and their corresponding prices.

A portion of each sale supports the S.E. Douglass Jr. Foundation, a not-for-profit charitable organization.
