And crabs. The good kind.
You can't see it here but everyone that passes this huge piece of driftwood places a shell somewhere in its grasp.
Do you see the Osprey nest in the upper right corner? This Photo was taken at my favorite beach. Lover's Key.
He's having a bad beach day.
Same goes for this guy.
It wasn't me. But someone had fun stringing shells like wind chimes.
He's also standing tall.
A trip to Naples Florida is never complete without viewing sunset at the pier. And for me that always follows happy hour at Tommy Bahamas! Coconut cloud martini...I miss you already.
The gouache is actually textured like sand.
My Friday illustrations may not look like a warning. But that is exactly what they represent. They were painted for the Ripple blog after the gulf oil spill. The blog sold 100's of paintings donated by artists to raise money for the disaster. My paintings are simply statement pieces about personal responsibility and conservation. Thank goodness our Florida trip was not black but beautiful.
