About 4 years ago, Kat Ostrow (@katost) posted some gorgeous photographs of sand and ocean landscapes from her trip to Cannon Beach. The images instantly struck a chord with me and I asked Kat for her permission to try my hand at capturing the feel and essence of the textural sand and reflective water of her beloved beach through my watercolor brush. It was a pleasure to abstractly re imagine the lines of sand and tide and then to share along with so many from our art community on twitter. The comment thread from this particular painting was generous and rich and it inspired me to continue on my artistic journey, wherever it may lead. A lovely reminder of the power of words.
