A Day At the Beach is a Good Day
The title is the underlying text of this 16x20 canvas, wherein I started experimenting with a layering technique, which I absolutely love. I need to get braver and do more layers, but I'm excited that I am at last venturing into it. It's something I've wanted to try for a long time.
The very top lettering says: I grew up on Cape Cod and learned to swim in the ocean when I was three. To me, there is nothing better than a summer day on the beach. I love the soothing sound of the surf, the sea's salty taste on my lips, & the warm sand berneath my feet. The sights and sounds of the beach make me feel like a child again--free and full of possibility.
Of all the pieces I've created so far, this is the one I'd be most apt to hang onto. But I'm putting it up for sale downtown. I won't have any prints available on this one.
