Love the art. Photo monochromatic ....the water has defined "action" with its choppy appearance. The eye isn't just drawn to the painting, but to the wave action in the water. LOVE IT! The last aspect I mentioned is the tone - in this case a monochromatic blend of greys which ties in beautifully with the dark/black accents in the room. The painting makes a statement, but keeping the picture in a monochrome keeps it subdued.
