This summer my family spent some time at the beach and it was wonderful! I especially loved one morning when my dad and I woke up super early and went for a walk along the beach. It was so peaceful and calming as we walked, talked, and picked up a few seashells along the way. When I painted this picture I thought of a girl standing on the beach feeling the tranquility of the breeze blowing through her hair and the waves calmly crashing along the sand.
My daughter's have fun joining in on the challenges and creating art with me. The painting above was painted by my oldest daughter who is 7 years old. She painted a picture of her dad fishing (which he loves to do).
Here is an up close view of the painting. She said, "Mom, look, I painted the type of trees that look like they have eyes on them". She was talking about Quaking Aspen trees.
Of course my youngest daughter, who is 6 years old, wanted to participate as well. When I told her the word was "water" and she saw what her older sister painted, she decided to paint herself fishing and camping.
I can't wait to see all of the rest of the Illustration Friday participants. Leave a comment and I will stop by your blog as well. :0)
