Coastal Quiet Time

Coastal Quiet Time

I was away for a few days so have been realllllly busy at work. So not much time to blog, or create :(

I did not take my sewing machine on vacation, this time. I usually do. But for a short stay of 3 nights I decided to take some paint and canvas instead. I did one small painting. 
My favorite time on the beach is from about 5pm until sunset. Everyone has gone inside to have dinner and soothe their sunburned skin. The heat has died down and the breeze has picked up. Oh that sky!

This painting was done entirely with palate knives with acrylic paint in a thick, impasto application.  It is 3 x 9 x 1/2 inches. 
Hope you like it.

Loosely (very) inspired by this photo. This was at a beach near my Southwest Florida Home. I can never hope to come close to the beauty our Creator blesses us with daily, but it always inspires me.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment.
This was purchased by an individual in Tampa as a gift to a friend in Texas!


  1. Thank you for visiting my blog today! That is a nice painting and beautiful sunset, I wish I could take my machine on vacation but I don't think my husband would be happy about it lol. I too have been working late hrs at work, it bites! Take care

  2. I love the fabrics in that first piece and the khaki background goes really well with them.
