watchin' the tide roll away . . .
And in between watching the tide, I decided to splash a little water of my own. I got out my trusty watercolor travel kit and sketch/paint pad and satisfied my yearning to paint a little. I had brought some photos along--you can barely see the photo of the iris peeping out of my paint pad. I doodled with my pen until I got a pretty good likeness and then splashed on some watercolor. What a fun way to spend a day--painting, wiggling my toes in the sand and taking a long walk on the beach. Oh, and cap that off with a delicious fresh seafood dinner. Back to reality this week. Goodbye Okaloosa Island, Florida--you provided us with a fabulous week on the beach! (See the completed painting below).
