BEACH ART – Sometimes nature leaves arrangements on the beach that are so beautiful. This Frog sea shell & seaweed are gorgeous. Other times people give nature a helping hand. Two very creative little girls created a giant heart out of cobblestones & seaweed. Next to it they made a sort of “nest” out of sand & Surf grass with cobblestone “eggs”. All in all a delightful day at the beach!
“X” MARKS THE SPOT – I didn’t dig here for treasure though, but I did think about “X” marking the spot on treasure maps. Then I thought about street or mall direction maps where the “X” says “You Are Here”. Yes I am here. I am here at the edge of the sea. “X” marks the spot where you can always find my heart!
Pterygophor californica – A sort of Sea Palm kelp. Branches wash up onto the beach in big surf & are randomly arranged by the sea.
This week little seaweed plants on tiny 1 inch (or smaller) stones washed up on the beach. I brought a few home to sketch & watercolor & that is what is on my art studio table this morning. After doing 2 paintings, I moved these tiny sea bouquets out to my patio table! I had the perfect mini flower pots for these magical seaweed bouquets. They are already dry, but they smell too fishy to be inside.
