Beach Sketches: # 17

I painted a little later than usual today and I'm glad.  The water and the sky just melted together  at the horizon.  It was a pinky-purple-ish haze. I might not gotten it right, but I enjoyed trying.

Beach Sketches: 4th of July

This scene could not have been more perfect if I had staged it myself; the American Flag and sandcastles.  There were a lot of children around, but I decided  not to include them. I didn't have a lot of time, the tide was coming in.

Beach Sketches: #15

The huddled masses; I think it's funny how everybody crowds in area and others are almost empty.
