Beach week

I recently returned from a wonderful week in Florida at Seagrove beach.  I brought my paints and although I did manage to paint a little bit, most of my time was spent playing at the beach and in the surf with my family.  Our grand babies really enjoyed the beach and it was so much fun to watch them, I didn't want to miss a minute.

Here is a picture of my beautiful family.  We had such a wonderful time!

A couple of quick paintings from my balcony...

"Ready For The Day"
6 x 6 - oil on canvas panel

Note:  This was what I was very lucky to wake up to every morning.  The beach was absolutely wonderful.  I painted this as the guy was setting up umbrellas and chairs for the day.

"The Sky Is Closed"
6 x 6 - oils on canvas panel

Note:  Sunsets in Florida are so beautiful.  I painted this one evening and when my little grandbaby came in to see what Nana was painting he described this as "the sky is closed".

  1. You all look so rested! Clay's smile is so big. I love these paintings, they have such a lovely en Plein air feel to them. Simply beautiful. And such a precious story behind the name "The Sky is Closed".
    So glad to see your painting.
