Ahhhhhh right now it's a perfect day in June, it's a Wednesday, noon, and I'm sitting on the beach at gulf shores, - at this usual time on a usual day the kids would be home (summer vaca yay!!) I'd be making lunch , gearing up to put gray down for his nap, then heading up to my studio for some quiet time to create and Push paint and think! But I'm sitting under an umbrella next to my honey, watching my 2 youngest boys pretend the umbrella digger thingie is a rocket gun, my oldest boy is looking for sand dollars (which we found the mother load by the sand bar) and my sweet girl found some friends at the "next door neighbor "umbrella and is screaming at the moment (fun screams) in the water - a good break from reality and it's really good to actually play with my kids making sand castles and swimming and searching for treasures alongside the seashore. I don't play enough at home so I like these as golden opportunities!
Even Allen and I get into "kid mode"- yesterday we had my parents distract our kids , then we snuck off in the blow up raft and went past the sand bar and found the star fish community - literally hundreds of them on the ocean floor- amazing!
Im also getting some fun ideas for my paintings ! Amazing colors in shells - indigo, mustard, creams, burnt umber, raw sienna, burnt sienna, Plus the beautiful teal and turquoise of the water - God is the master artist and it takes my breath away!
