Beach Life

I just can’t get the sea off my mind – when I was young we went to Maine a lot . Recently a couple of my college buddies did a mini tour of New England (maybe more like New England Pubs) and posted pictures of the coast in RI – I couldn’t go due to kids activities – but I did manage to squeeze in a painting – (and a couple of cocktails) so I was almost there.

They’re back… more creatures from the deep blue sea

I think it is because I am a Pisces. Not being ‘into’ astrology, and having no clue what that really means – I do love the ocean. I love the sand. I love the sunshine and all the cool things that wash up on the beach. Even the ‘gross’ jelly fish are cool – you just can’t get too close.

That said, this morning was crabby morning – not in a bad mood- just felt like crab-ing it a bit. This is crabby love I. There is a two, but I am only sharing one. The other feels ‘unfinished’.

Have a lovely crabby day .

here is what I like about summer

Sometimes, nothing matters. It is a good and a bad feeling at the same time, we are going with the ‘good’ here. Here are two mixed media pieces. the first was actually the bottom piece – you know the one with the star fish that looks good. The lettering got screwed up becuase my faithful companion (the furry one) nudged me with the pen in my hand while I was writing – he needed a bone and it made no difference to him what I was doing. (He is truly a canine child.) So I ripped off the bad part and set about making a ‘new’ flat copy. Then I suddenly realized that I could rebuild the tide with other ‘mistakes’. I like it, but there really isn’t room for any lettering. So I finished the other one.  (The shadows are n’t actually on the top piece, the flat scanner made them because the waves on the bottom piece made it.
