Careful Stance

Here is another 4 x 6 of one of the beach princesses. The little kids are priceless at the beach!

My Watch

This 4 x 6 ink and watercolor was done for another WetCanvas exchange that I'm doing..."Vacation/Holiday Dreams." I appreciate all the safety the lifeguards provide to those of us enjoying the beach. I painted this while I was at the beach last week. He looks ready, and strong enough to rescue me!

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.

Special Seat

Here is another 4 x 6 painting done at the beach. I think he needs a Carona in his hand...

I've always loved hydrangeas. We had them growing in our backyard as kids, but we always called them snowball bushes. This is 4 x 6 done sitting out in the courtyard of the hotel where I did the "Shady Gazebo" painting. It started raining before I got it as complete as I wanted...maybe that's a good thing.

Wetting Her Toes

Who can resist a little girl with ponytails and sunglasses? Not me. This is 4 x 6 done at the beach last week.

Contemplating Life

These two women caught my eye at the beach the other day, so I pulled out my 4 x 6 little pad and my small paint set to capture them. Later when they came back to the blanket in front of me, I noticed that the one on the left was pregnant (I couldn't see her tummy from where I was painting her) and found out that they were mother and daughter. I should have called it "Three Generations."

I had to try a larger painting (11 x 15) before the cherry season was over. IRL the cherries are darker, but I couldn't get the photo to show the darker colors! Enjoy!
