Trash or Treasure?

This is one of my earliest paintings and I can see many "things wrong with it".  I put it in the trash bin last week......and I'm so glad I changed my mind and retrieved it before it was carted away!   I don't remember if it is oils or acrylics, oils I think.  It just makes me feel good.  Hope you enjoy it too.

Wouldn't it be fun to live near the beach? To go there whenever the fresh air, sunshine, and breeze beckon?  To go there whenever you want to really feel oneness with nature, to sing out loud, to run and not even realize it, to breathe deeply, to think, play, cool your heels?  I don't live anywhere near the beach so I'm keeping my little beachy painting.  It will be the closest I get to the real thing for awhile.  Treasure for sure.


  1. there's a breeziness to it that is wonderful!

  2. Don't throw it out! I like all the lines in the deck, railing, lattice and the horizon- it's all beautiful. I think living near the beach would be wonderful in every season, too.

    Thanks for stopping at my blog. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. My sister is an artist and I have one of her earlier paintings that she keeps wanting me to throw away, but I love it. Beautiful paintings, and I especially love the lavender fields. Gorgeous!
