Life is such a Beach!
Well, I’m back, with a touch of sun on my skin, and a little bit of beach in other places not to be mentioned, but I’m back. Panama City was an absolute beauty, no oil, let me repeat that, no oil at all. There was a day that sea-foam floated just off shore and the rumors were flying that it was oil, well if it was oil it’s been there every year we have gone done at least one day out of the last 10 years. And then one morning I walked onto the balcony and looked down and along the beach were spots as big around as most home, was nothing but pure black, my heart saddened by the thought that it was oil. But it wasn’t it was sea life, thousand and thousands of little fish, blackened the waters in 30 to 60 foot schools. It was amazing you could walked right through them and they would keep just arms length away from you, but they stayed there the entire day. So many rumors were flying on those two occasions that oil had hit the beach. So many people had mistaken the foam and fish for oil before they really new the truth, Hmmm wonder how misinformation gets through the news and grapevine so quickly. Don’t get me wrong there’s oil, but for right now it is off shore and I hope remains that way until clean-up.
Anyway, these are two of about six paintings and drawings I did while sitting on the beach. Others are soon to be posted. Thank you all that visited and commented while I was gone, I hope to reply soon and post my other paintings.
