V is for Vacation

To me no vacation feels right unless it is includes time enjoying the sea and sky.

I am lucky. I get to spend the winters where the beaches are beautiful and the sun shines most days. Best of all, I get to watch the sun rise and set over the Pacific almost daily.

And everyday, I try to capture the ever changing beauty with my camera, When I get home, I continue to enjoy my vacation by revisiting the beautiful skies in my art.

This pastel piece is drawn on a sheet of beautiful
turquoise Canson Mi Tiente paper that I bought while on vacation. I love the way the background color of the paper enriches the overall image - making it easy to recreate the light on the water and in the clouds.
