BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – “Creative Cans In the Sand” co-founders Bobby Freeman and Nikki McCoy-Freeman have received a stunning trash can decorated by world renowned artist Steve Barton that will soon be featured at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach.
“I am really happy to be a part of Creative Cans in the Sand,” said Barton.
The “Creative Cans In the Sand” mission is to encourage beach-goers to dispose of their trash responsibility, with the hopes that the more noticeable artistically painted cans will result in a cleaner, more litter-free beach.
The “Creative Cans In the Sand” initiative, organized by Cocoa Beach area Realtors Bobby Freeman and his wife Nikki, continues to get incredible support.

For Barton, painting is a way of life. He loves to spend spare moments combing areas for inspiration. Old quaint houses, cottages, cabins and villas that capture the heart of life on the beach are among his favorite settings to capture on canvas.
The “Wavy” concept was created by Barton in 1999 and is a testament to his creativity. The Wavy Frame was designed to bring the frame into the work of art, creating a single unit.
Together, the painting and frame invite you to walk around the room, viewing the scene from different angles as the natural shadow lines of the canvas subtly change the tone of the scene.
Barton’s artwork is currently on display in Cocoa Beach at the Debrilcha Gallery located at 133 N. Orlando Avenue, Wednesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
”He brings to life awe-inspiring coastlines and tropicals, and is known for strong brushstrokes, rich textures and vibrant colors,” said DebrilchaGallery.com
“His signature wavy frames enhance the feeling of movement in these tropical paintings.”
“Just stick it in the can!” said Barton.
