Life's a Beach

Sandman
Sandman 12" X 12" (for Take a Word and Illustration Friday)

I've missed my little creatures, so I decided to start a new series of smalls called "Things With Feathers." Here's the first piece. It's mixed media on board, with deep(1 5/8" sides), and it's wired and ready to hang, so let me know if you're interested in this liitle guy. I'm off to Folly Beach tomorrow, and I've packed a trunkful of boards, all primed and ready for painting. Here's hoping my muse loves sun and sand and seafoood as much as I do. I'm not too worried about her, though; Charleston always gets my creative juices flowing!

There is something captivating about this piece all the movement in the sky and as if she has just landed on the sand. Love her! Theresa

Ok, so I looked at the title of this post and expected a piece of art about the beach. Then I came back to your blog to write a comment. This time I read the title and laughed at myself out loud....thick as a brick! Now I get it! Sandman is gorgeous. Have fun.

Long, long time no "see"! I adore this little feathered creature! It's so nice to be back here seeing all the gorgeousness you've been creating. I hope you had fun at the beach - sun, sand and seafood are 3 of my very favorite things in the world. xo Serena

This is just beautiful! I love the rich texture of the mixed media - it gives such life and character to images. Can't wait to see more of the series!
