Down by the Sea

Down by the Sea 4″ x 6″ watercolor pen and ink
I liked my little sand dollar so much, that I decided to do a little series of seaside themed cards. I think I’ll turn them into a set of notecards soon. (Did I mention that already? Probably, lol!) I’m suffering from dementia in my 30’s!! Man…does the brain ever recover from bearing children?
Anyways…it’s refreshing to go back to the basics every once in a while, and not take my art so damn seriously! I’m enjoying these little guys, and I love the ocean…so I’ll keep ya posted.
Cheers!

I was fiddling around with my new Windsor and Newton watercolors the other night, with an idea for a gift tag for a special order and I came up with this little image. I’ve always been fascinated with Sand Dollars and their simplicity and beauty and they remind me of playing with my daughter at the seaside, on our special trip to Tofino. This one looks better bigger, so please click away!¬†
I’m planning on doing a set of seaside/seashell themed gift cards for my shop, so keep your eyes peeled:)
