Beaches

Sand between the toes, breezes off the Atlantic, the sound of gulls, waves crashing, sun tan lotion, sea oats and salt spray --- the beach I know and love. It'll be a while yet before another visit to the beach, so I enjoy the memories and paint my visit from past experiences. This painting was another trip down memory lane....

Mom is doing incredibly well as are my sisters, and time with them is enjoyable, relaxing and even energizing. The weather has been wonderful, though warm, but a different warm than the excessive heat and humidity I've experienced all summer. There's a glorious breeze that brings me right back to spring, and a freshness in the morning that hides the humidity that returns by afternoon. Still, seeing Mom doing so well, her mind as alert as ever, (she still is a force to reckon with when playing cards!!! LOL), fills me with an intense gratitude for all she's been through and all the help my sisters have been in her care.

I've a few more days of visiting, then back to my routine and an art show to prepare for. I wish you all a magnificent weekend!!!!

Serene and peaceful. I want to be sitting on a bench looking right at that water. The details in your clouds and water and even the sand are incredible. And the way you've framed all that with the sea grasses -- perfection!
Hugs,
