Pastel and Poetry

Seaside Treasure

A Glimpse in Time

A walk along a sandy beach

with footprints of every size.

The waves move forth to catch the prints,

and bring them back in time.

Odd little pieces of driftwood,

and colored nuggets of glass.

Contribute to my understanding,

through nature’s casual past.

Every granule of sandy beach,

represents a whole of life.

A shell, a bottle, a piece of rock,

or a plank from a ship in plight.

A heart-shaped stone so smooth and weathered,

Can measure the ocean’s caress.

Green seaweed hangs upon the rocks,

As a symbol of duress.

The tide pool is playground,

for crabs and starfish too.

The periwinkles stick around,

to keep the company true.

Nature has its beauty,

in every glimpse you take,

the sea, the shore, the sandy beach,

It gives you inner strength.

“Family Ties”

 

Introducing my newest painting; “Family Ties”!  I am so excited to have finished this pastel piece!  Originally I started with the opposite colors of what is showing right now. It was a difficult piece for me to do…it took a lot of thinking, but the end result was absolutely gorgeous! The original photo was taken by me at Pawtuckaway State Park. I decided to turn it into a pastel painting.  Our kayaks are looking on to what we call “Frisella Island”.  We usually dock our kayaks there to eat lunch, have cocktails and pick blueberries.  It is an awesome time!
