Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves crash and watching the most beautiful sunrise...what could be more magical...

I took over a hundred photos that morning, these are some of my favorites. I love the outline around the clouds in the first ones.

Hope you are having a great week.

Playing around...

Before I left for vacation, I finished a couple of pieces...playing around with a few different ideas..

A thing of beauty is a joy forever. John Keats
10 x 8 on canvas
I was inspired by a piece by Rita Maria in the Autumn 2011 issue of Somerset Apprentice.

Waiting on the storm 9 x 6
This is my first ever attempt at doing a watercolor. I've been reading several books on watercolor painting and am fascinated by the process. I'm currently working on a few smaller pieces...still a learning process.
Vacation was absolutely fabulous...lots of photos to share soon.
Hope you are having a great week.

Wish I was still there. Had a fabulous time, now playing catch up.
Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Life's a beach...

and that's where I'm headed in a few days...a much needed vacation. I plan to read, explore and soak up the sun.

8 x 10 canvas
Hope you are enjoying the end of summer, I sure am loving the cooler nights we've been having lately. Still a bit of packing to do and a few projects to finish up before I leave, have a fantastic weekend.
