Patrice’s wonderful drawing challenge, water

March 29, 2014

This morning I sat in the cool light contemplating the ocean and Patrice’s drawing challenge.

For some reason I had yesterdays sand sculptures on my mind; especially this lovely iguana which was claimed by a pelican. I wondered if the sea came up in the night and the water claimed the sand back as its own.

This afternoon I used the resort’s acrylics to draw myself the sea.

And then I walked down the beach and offered the sea a bit of art. Ephemeral as it is, it will be washed away by the water and the only thing left will be a memory. 🙂

      I know Tammie! I’m so lucky because I only brought my pencils. I think I will sew the four canvases C and I painted into a collage of sorts and frame them.

    Hi Veronica, so lovely pictures of the ocean, the pelican and your painting – sigh, its water at its best, I guess nothing is more soothing for ones soul than sitting and watching the ocean breath. Wonderful.
    What a great vacation! Wow, also the pics with the sunset – sensational!
