A Day at the Beach

A stroll along the water, the rocky shore, sea life washed ashore is all inspiration for new watercolor paintings.

A day at the beach refreshes the soul!  The sights, the exploring, the fresh air….

Evening On Calais Beach – Poem by William Wordsworth

IT is a beauteous evening, calm and free,

Inspiration for a watercolor painting
Evening at the Oregon Coast

The holy time is quiet as a Nun
Breathless with adoration; the broad sun
Is sinking down in its tranquillity;
The gentleness of heaven broods o’er the sea:
Listen! the mighty Being is awake,
And doth with his eternal motion make
A sound like thunder–everlastingly.
Dear Child! dear Girl! that walkest with me here,
If thou appear untouch’d by solemn thought,
Thy nature is not therefore less divine:
Thou liest in Abraham’s bosom all the year;
And worshipp’st at the Temple’s inner shrine,
God being with thee when we know it not.
