St George Island Spring

'St. George Island Spring' 8x10 pastel
Dreaming of the beach today after seeing all of Corey's snow pictures from Chicago! Last Spring we spent a wonderful week on St. George Island in Florida. We walked on the beach for miles every day and wandered all over this beautiful unspoiled part of Florida. We didn't paint as much as we had planned but we did get a lot of photos so today was the perfect day to paint a beach scene. This is on UArt with an alcohol wash underpainting.

This is wonderful and let me tell you it is perfect for this time of year. I'm in MN and this has been a very hard winter! Lots and lots of snow and very cold. ugh. How I wish I were on this beach right now!
Thanks for sharing it and like all of your paintings I love it!
