whimsical wednesday by the sea….

You thought i disappeared, didn't you??!!  All the days blur together in my island state of mind… but i'm being a "creating art machine" in my beach vacation art studio.  

If it were only a permanent address here on the Florida gulf coast!

 So far, I have completed 14 new illustrations in 5 days on my beach cottage "deck studio" nestled in the sea grape leaves.  Winter is brutal in upstate New York, and I desperately need the sun and our sea breeze retreat every year to recharge my artsy batteries and fuel my soul.  My  creativity explodes in this environment.


 …and it's so true, in the right frame of mind, covered in sunshine and surrounded by deep turquoise waters, everything is brighter………Everything DOES sparkle by the sea... 
Looking forward to sharing all my sunshine art with you in upcoming posts.  It's soooo good to be at the beach!

  8. How did you begin to come up with whimsical ideas? Is it a sense of humor or do you build up the skill?:)
