A walk on the Beach

Walk on the Beach, 10 x 14" watercolour, July 2008
I recently took the kids to Mavilette Beach, just outside of Yarmouth NS. The day was splendid, the surf was high and there were lots of people enjoying the water. I might add just a few stripes of gravel in the foreground to lead one's eye into the picture.

Artists by the Sea, St. Andrews NB, 2008

Artists by the sea is a fundraiser for the Charlotte County Hospice. Artists paint around beautiful St. Andrews by the Sea, New Brunswick and the paintings are available by silent auction on both days of the event. This year proved again to be successful, both for the Hospice (raising more than $10,000) and for me. I think that I painted better than I have done at previous similar events. This is supported by the fact that of all the paintings I made, I only got to bring one of them home. All paintings below are watercolour and now in private collections unless otherwise noted.
