At first when we moved here coming to relax at the end of the day for a few hours at the ocean was a relief from boxes, decisions, the lack of AC. Now it has become a very enjoyable time to talk over the day with my husband, read, or just vegetate. But another thing is happening. I keep looking at the colors, the waves, the seals that pop up to stare back at us, and ,the changing scene wondering, "How do people actually paint this?" Always it is beautiful, but somedays it just takes my breath away. I can tell this will be a challenge. Right now I am happy to soak it all in as I try to figure it all out. I guess that's half the fun of painting... solving the problem in your head.
