PACIFIC BEACH, SAN DIEGO IN MARCH 2016 – AN ARTIST’S JOURNAL BY-THE-SEA

March 2016 - PB An Artist Journal By the Sea W

Even a few inches of rain in San Diego this winter brings vistas of Wild Sunflowers growing all along the edge of the marsh at Mission Bay.  The yellow flower fields contrast nicely against the marsh, which has turned greener from the rains, too.  Years of drought have finally passed & the wild flowers are returning with a vengeance as if nature is drunk on the water sinking into her earth.  Purple finches hop from branch to branch chirping happily in the thicket of flowers which have sprung up.  Doves seem to be everywhere now, too.  I hear them softly coo-cooing all day long.  Continue reading

ART JOURNAL KEEPING BY AN ARTIST BY-THE-SEA

December Art Journal - Page 112 W

This is a page for the end of 2015 in my Daily Art Journal. Boy did 2015 fly by fast or what? I’m going to have to keep another form of journal keeping for 2016 because my life seems to be going by faster & faster & it’s hard to find time to do this visual journal keeping of my life as an artist by-the-sea!

 

SAN DIEGO SUNSET DREAMS

Before the sunset there is already a light-filled cloudy sky.  

It is a silver goodness of hope.  The silver lining of life.  

The palm trees behind me are lit up by the golden setting sun.  They become amber beacons of light.   

The sun lingers at the horizon seeming to not want this day, this moment to end.  This day has been a gift.  Unwrapped & delighted in. 

The sun slips into the horizon with a pink & lavender memory of this day.  The sunset light streams out into our dreams.
