SEA THERAPY


“The waves of the sea
Help me get back to me.”
--Jill Davis
For the past several weeks, I have been dealing with an upper respiratory infection...that just won't go away.
So I headed to the sea for some therapy...
Not just for the body...but for the soul....
My mornings and late afternoons were filled with wonderful images of children, wizened senior citizens, and lots of nature...
In a short period of time, God provided me with so much entertainment:
a variety of shore birds to inspire future paintings...
Manatees swimming along the shore...
Dolphins riding the waves...
Children enjoying the surf...
Teens learning to ride skim boards...
Sailboats...
and LOTS of calico scallop shells for my next project!
Brothers at play...

End of the day...

Pirate ship filled with "snow birds" and "Spring-Breakers"

The ladies in white...speaking a language I did not recognize...

The dance...These two lovlies danced in the waves for quite some time...

Nature's sculpture...a seaweed alligator!

Inspiration!

 I left the beach with a renewed spirit...lots of inspiration for new paintings...but still no voice and limited hearing.
So...I am leaving in a few minutes for another week of no talking, no noise, and wonderful sea air.
Wish you could be with me...
by the sea.

With love from the sea,
Jane
