9x12 oil on board
SOLDSaturday my friend Sally Dean and I drove up to the North Shore to visit Crane Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Again, you don't usually have to travel too far to enjoy an adventure in your own 'backyard' as it were. We walked on the beach, visited some antique shops and a yard sale where we picked up some cool stuff. Then we set up overlooking a dune with beach roses and a knarled old tree and painted. On the way home we stopped for ice cream in Essex, another hidden gem. It was glorious!!! I need to work just a teeny bit more on the beach roses, here. But for now I'm setting this aside until I can get a fresh perspective.
