The right Tools for the Job

"The Right Tools for the Job"

I have so much new material from my magical day at Asilomar state beach last week.  It was a beautiful, warm, sparkly day.  Kids, dogs and lovers out in nature and enjoying being alive.  I love the kids especially, having the very best kind of fun, the free kind!  It's great for them to just get dirty and wet and dig in the sand.

Sea Glass

"Sea Glass"

I saw so many little kids, dogs and lovers simply enjoying nature and the beautiful white sand and sparkling water at Asilomar State Beach last Friday.  It really warmed my heart and gave me the nudge I needed to head back to my art room and paint what I saw and what I felt.  It pays to get out and about and be in nature, it just plain makes you feel good!

Wave Dodgers

"Wave Dodgers"

Watching the kids play on the beach the other day reminded me of the wonderful feeling I got as a kid running and dodging the waves.  Sometimes I could run away faster than the water could catch me, but it's fun to get caught ; D  I love seeing the kids on the beach having a blast, with nothing but a bathing suit!

Girlfriends

"Girlfriends"

I am looking forward to the paintings that are going to come out of my day at Asilomar state beach.  These little girls were so absorbed in what they were making with the wet sand.  Everyone comes alive at this beach, it's very sparkly and beautiful!

Asilomar Rocks

"Asilomar Rocks"

Yes it does, I visited this pristine beach for the first time this past Valentine's day weekend.  I had a glorious picnic with Mike, my husband..best man in the world!  I then filled an empty camera card with photos.  This is the first painting to come out.  I am sure there will be many more, it was a glorious day.
