We had such a lovely time in San Diego over Christmas.   I loved walking along the beach and people watching.  This painting was inspired by those lovely walks. I think it must be wonderful to live by the ocean, just a few steps from the sand.

I grew up in Ohio and when I was little we often took vacations to places like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina or Panama Beach, Florida.  I remember how excited I would be when we got our first glimpse of the ocean.  I would be busting to get out of the car and run for the waves.  I’m no different as an adult,  I can’t wait to get that first glimpse and kick off my shoes and go running through the sand.

The sound of the waves crashing, the smell of the salty air, the warm breeze… paradise!
