Treasures of the Sea

Today in Connecticut I unwrapped some of
my favorite shells that I brought with me.
Just seeing them reminds me
of the beach...and when I draw and paint them
I can feel the time when I collected them
and smell the salt air.

I discovered some old treasures in my
Dad's basement, that you can see over here!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Just beautiful, i really love your illustrations. I see a heart rock!

  2. Lori ann and acornmoon,
    So happy you both stopped by the studio blog and appreciate your comments! I brought some of my heart rocks with me to Connecticut and think I will paint more of's so nice to paint from life for a change.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful!!
    Sometimes when I look at a picture I've sewn, I can distinctly remember the music or book on tape I was listening to when I stitched it. A little like your association with the smell of salt air?
