"The Sea does doesn't reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea." Anne Morrow LindberghAs Beach Week continues I thought it was fitting to share one of my favorite quotes from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book 'Gift From The Sea'. I like to read this book occasionally and especially when I go to the beach. I love this quote because it reminds me of an important lesson that I can apply to many things in my life ...including my painting.

Next time things are frantic and you are going in too many different directions, take a deep breath, slow down and paint a sea shell.
