The grey of coastal sky and whites of the sea have found their way into this painting...the newest of The Sea Series.
The Sea VI is on a larger canvas 18 x 24 and able to fill a room with more impact than the smaller ones.
the paint is still wet here
I like this one so much that I may have to keep it for Sea Cottage.
"I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Ocean's voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

So I decided to go shopping at Target this morning while my son was at the Dentist...and while strolling through the aisles I came across the Summer issue of Romantic Country...
and to my excitement opened the pages to find a sweet little feature of my Nora Pearl~ 'Sea Cottage on Wheels'!
I have to thank the lovely Editor Mary Forsell, whom contacted me months ago and really worked her magic to include me in this issue. I knew nothing about pixels or high resolution photos, which are a must for publishing. So 'thank you Mary', the feature is beautiful! I gently tossed the magazine in my cart, even though she is sending me a complimentary copy. She is so kind and I am thankful to have met her.
When you get your copy of the Summer issue of Romantic Country look for me(and Nora Pearl) in the blog spot section on Travel and Getaways.
It is Nora Pearl's first feature! and she is so cute. ox

This photo reaches deep into me...not sure why. I think I like the realness of it. Besides that, I feel like that dog today. I may not be back till next week to post. Oh, and I decided to remove my music from my blog after reading My Sweet Savannah's post today. I moved it over to my Seawashed Studio blog which gets much less traffic and that way I can still listen. Hope you are all having a better week than I am or does anyone else feel like that dog? ox

"in the secret places of the cliff..."
“The art of leisure lies, to me, in the power of absorbing without effort the spirit of one’s surroundings; to look, without speculation, at the sky and sea ...”
