2014 ART JOURNAL – LAST WEEK OF JULY 

This week found me making cat greeting cards (with rubber stamps & washi tape), finding a pair of small Maneki Neko cats at a thrift store, eating lemon tarts because it’s hot, picking up a heart-shaped leaf & looking at my blue & white beads to make a necklace.  My favorite thing though was following the shore birds as they feasted on a giant school of anchovy fish.  While stopping my car at little dead end roads in Ocean Beach (south of the pier), I came across this little secret place by-the-sea with a weathered beach chair.  I was so intent on watching & photographing the birds that I almost didn’t even see this lovely spot, but suddenly I saw the view from an artist’s eye & got the shot.  Summer by-the-sea.
