I am on beach time!

We are at the beach!
 I LOVE the ocean, the beach houses, the wind, the sounds ... everything! The beach we are staying at is in a sleepy beach village here in Georgia. The trees loop down low and have spanish moss draped on the boughs. The cicadas are singing and the sun is shining bright. I honestly don't know how it can get better than this!

 There are some of the most adorable little houses on our block. Tomorrow I want to take pictures of them because I definitely feel like they belong in my art journal! The colors are soft and the details are amazing! I did bring my sketchbook and watercolors with me. (Secretly, I am hoping for one rainy afternoon so I can sit and sketch without feeling guilty about not being in the sand and surf with the family!) Is that bad? The beach is just always somewhere I feel inspired. There are just so many beautiful and interesting things to look at and observe. Where do you feel most inspired? The beach, the mountains, the city ....

This sailboat was a journal page I did before we left. I gelliplated the background. Then I sketched, water colored and cut out the sailboat. Just a very simple page, I know, but I like how the sailboat turned out! The sentiment is dear to me. Have a great week everyone!
