Today marks the first installment in a series of canvases that will be launched throughout the next few months on AOL.com, all focused around the theme of summer! From now until end of August, 20 new canvases by nine AOL Artists will be released on AOL.com.

We are thrilled to introduce Rachell Sumpter and Keat Toah to the AOL Artists family, and to welcome back long time friend to AOL and Alumni AOL Artist, Mr. Kiji.

Debuting today on AOL.com are six canvases - Keat Toah's "Lady Liberty;" Rachell Sumpter's "Regata," "Balloons," "Listen," and Sweetheart Ride;" and Mr. Kiji's "BBQ," all of which are reminiscent of summertime, sunshine, and the beach.

Keat Teoh is a New York based artist who creates witty, lighthearted illustrations using watercolor. His work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Inc. Magazine and the Boston Pheonix. Rachell Sumpter is a West Coast artist who creates small-scale paintings that celebrate the beauty of western nature and wilderness. Rachell has exhibited in galleries internationally including shows in Tokyo, Stockholm and Madrid.

Make sure to keep visiting AOL.com to see all the canvases in our Summer Series launches.
