This painting started as a memory: the last morning of a great week at the beach with my family. It was cold, we carried a thermos of coffee and hot chocolate down to the ocean to watch the sun rise. We walked, and sipped, and enjoyed the cool sand beneath our feet. I love the way my boys often lean into each other when they walk.
Of course, like any good Labradors, or my children in this case, they did not stay out of the water. I packed up this memory with the kids wet and sandy sweatshirts and pajamas. Now months later, my memory finally found its way to my easel (fortunately my husband is better at unpacking than I am, he dealt with the wet clothes the midnight we came home).

Touching memory. fantastic picture. I love the play of the water on the sand.
I have noticed and loved the way the boys lean against each other also. Their love and camaraderie is actually tangible, incredible. Your beautiful painting brings us right into your breath taking morning. I can feel the damp sand between my toes your colors are so very realistic. Thank you for your gift of life, love and our beautiful world.
I love how you have transformed your memory to this beautiful Painting Patricia . I love how realistic the water and sand is!! 🙂 *Cynthia
