Winter Escapes Me

I asked a budding artist, @GeekyBookworm, if she would paint me a fall scene since we don’t get much fall around here…seems like we go from hot summer straight into rainy winter…no pretty leaves!

She asked me if I would do a beach scene for her…plenty of beach around here!

Plus, I kinda wanted to rub it in to all my family and friends who were posting pictures of snow… :laughing:

This is kinda a mish mash of other beach scenes I have pinned as well as my memory of the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets we get here…and techniques that I learned in the zoom meetings!

When in doubt, splatter it!


This is really gorgeous! Thank you for swapping with @GeekyBookworm! She enjoys being able to do that while she waits to be able to officially swap! I may just go in her room and stare at that picture all the time. Living in the middle of the country, we don’t get to visit the beach much!

All the different techniques all mesh together really well!!! It really is a beautiful scene!!!

The sunset it just lovely. I love the palm grass too.

When we can safely travel again, you can come visit me! I can take you to the spot to see this in real life!

BTW…the three little birds in the upper left corner were in homage to you… :wink:

This is a technique I don’t remember about often enough!

Layering creates depth and it seems splatters serve that function…but some people hate them…my sister always thinks I should quit while I am ahead…we agree to disagree…her paintings look flat to me…but, it is one of my go-tos. ha ha
