"A Quick Trip to the Beach"
Ok, so I thought the rule was that everyone that participates does a new piece of art each day in January then posts it here. But, it seems not everyone has taken the "worm," and today, I didn't get anything done either.
So, I'm going to pretend that I went to Lincoln City, OR, for just a few minutes today. The sun was warm, and the sand felt good against my naked toes. The dog chased a stick into the surf and we had cheese and crackers and wine and hot dogs and s'mores, and we flew our kites.
I did a quick watercolor sketch, and then we crashed in the cabin. And for just those few moments of what was really one of last autumn's final glorious days, the cold air, the heavy gray clouds, and the promise of freezing rain, disappeared.
Just for a few moments.
Maybe you can take a quick trip too.
