Plein Air….Beaches and Boats


Mid-February in the Ohio Valley has me daydreaming of warmer days!


Brought my moleskine out to the beach one day last summer!   Watercoloring in this environment is a lot harder than I thought it would be…..Sand is always shifting and winds are always blowing.


Had a nice meal at a beach-side pub one afternoon. Then I ran out of time to really get my watercolor on.


Hung out at a marina another morning before it got too hot.


On this outing, I stepped back to try and capture all the boats under a covered dock.


Apparently I only saw the left side of boats on this drawing day.


And last, the great lawn of a popular local restaurant with all these fun chairs.

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
