Where are the lazy days of Summer? It feels busy. I’m trying hard to squeeze in sketching time, even at the pool. And if I’m at the beach, I’m always taking pictures and thinking about the next painting.
More and more, I realize how inspired I am by the seasons. My paintings of flowers have been replaced by beach paintings, pool sketches, and shell patterns. I see other artists online who are working on Christmas cards for the upcoming season. It makes sense – so their products are ready in time, but I don’t think I could do that! I love immersing myself in a season (or theme) and continuing to explore it with each project. I couldn’t put the shells away and start doodling Santas, at least not at this point.

Me too! Did you see my painting with pool water post? Now you can paint with ocean water – my friend on WordPress says she’s done it, too. LOL!
I did see it! I think painting at the beach might be a little messy and sandy – although that could add to the effect!
I agree. I couldn’t start my Christmas or Hanukah cards in this weather. Love the seasons here in the Northeast.
Me too. Except those cold winters when it is no longer fun that it’s snowing!
I am enjoying the summer doodles… 🙂
Thank you 🙂
