Beach Ahead

My favorite beaches are those that have sand dunes and grasses. I love the interesting patterns in the grasses, especially the dried leaves and roots. This is 7 x 10 and was painted while I sat in the beach walkway last week.

I knew I would find a relaxing beach if I came over here. I'm in landlocked New Mexico. :)

I love all these beach scenes. Your watercolors are so full of life.

I always love your dune paintings - they bring back so many memories of our beach days as kids.

Mickey - Sand, surf, shells!!! Thanks.

Jeanne - Thank you. I love how the color of the ocean changes in different places, in different weather, at different times of the day, etc.

Your dunes remind me of 'home', Joan. That perfect white sand and the lovely grasses. Your dune paintings are always me favourites too.

Robyn, I'm glad you like it and that it reminds you of home. No beaches in Tuscany, but what a place!
