Sunday Sketches

So this week we had more snow. Oh man, I'm so sick of cold weather and snow. When I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for Sunday Sketches I thought, "Well if I do the beach, maybe summer will sneak up on us quicker." Don't know if it will but what the heck!

So I started with a quick little sketch. From there I used watercolor pencils. I don 't use them often so it was fun to just play with them.

 I love the beach. When I'm at the beach I love to pick up the shells. I always told my kids that God left us a little treasure on the beach to remind us how much He loves us. One time was on the Beach in Ocean City and a whole bunch of starfish were all over the beach as the tide went out. I spent, I dont' know how much time, tossing them back into the ocean. I often wonder did I save any of them? Oh well, I hope you enjoyed my little Sunday Sketch!

Hi Joann:) Ahh southern weather. I always loved walking on the beach with the wind blowin'. I'll bet you saved some of those star fish. They don't bite or sting huh? I got stung once by a jelly fish.

No Carol, didn't save them. I wanted them so much to live!

READERS PLEASE NOTE:
I just found out that Sophia who coordinates this Sunday Sketches needs some prayers.

Her father had surgery is in not good. He will need treatment for his condition afterwards. Please keep him and her in your prayers.

Thank you.

Lovely Joann, I have found that for me painting shells is very difficult but you seem to have nailed it.

Good afternoon, Joann,
Thank you for including the news about Sopia's father. I will keep them in my prayers.

As you know, we had been stranded in this most recent blizzard, so I am way behind on blog reading and commenting. I hope everything is well with you.

Have a relaxing Sunday ~Natalie
