“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceness as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.”
– Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I’m ‘flip-flopping’ collections and releasing ‘COASTAL HOLIDAY‘ on December 1 instead. There are more ‘small-size, perfect for giving’ pieces in this series so it made sense. Look for it on social media and my website tomorrow morning.
What is it about being at the beach in the winter? The air is chilly; the sky is gray, but it feels relaxing and cozy.
A puzzle spread out on the table, a fuzzy blanket to wrap up in, and new Christmas toys to play with. Having time to catch up on that new novel, walk on the beach with a steaming cup of coffee, or take a much-needed nap. Watching bowl games and snacking on leftover Christmas cookies. It’s all about the pace.
Whether at the beach or enjoying down-time at home, it’s a good time to regroup and think about the new year. I tried to capture it with a muted color palette and some loose lines.
These new paintings are various sizes and prices so I hope you can find something that is just perfect for you or a loved one. Or you and a loved one.
How about you? Do you like the beach in the off-season?
