Dune Grass


Dune Grass, 9 x 12, L. Daniel
.
Yesterday I painted at St. Andrew's Beach on Jekyl Island (a neighboring barrier island). What is great about this beach (besides being beautiful) is that there are trees near the shore that provide shade for picnic-ers and painters alike. Silly? I suppose, but I need the shade when I paint outside. The beach is particularly blinding so trees are my friends! :)

Hi Laurel, I have not comment in a long time, but still visit you site. I couldn't let this one go by without commenting. Everything about it sings to me, the grasses, the shadows in the sand, the beautiful tree and water and sky. Don't want to take my eyes off it.

Enjoy your vacation.

The colors are SO beautiful. I also love the composition and subject. Incredibly fresh.

By the way, are you ever going to rest? I'm feeling totally inadequate. Just sayin'.

Beautiful, Laurel! I love this painting! I'm so envious, we spent some time on Jekyll Island a few years ago and loved it! Enjoy your time away!!

This is very lovely, Laurel. A great group of paintings you are doing on your "busman's holiday!"

Oh wow, the lit up beach makes it really appealing. Love the sky colors as well.
