Beach Landscape,"Sand Dunes 2" by Amy Whitehouse

In order to get from the rental beach house to the beach each day,
I must navigate a couple of mildly steep sand dunes.
As I plod up and down the soft loose ground,
keeping an eye out for Florida critters,
I marvel at the beautiful lit colors the sun gives
to simple sand.

Contemporary Bird Painting, "Sea Bird," by Amy Whitehouse


Oil, 6" x 6" $95

Having the good fortune to spend a month 
at the beach
to paint and gather photographs for
future studio painting.
I'm loving every minute of this working vacation.

Watching sea birds search for meals
is endlessly calming,
as is the sound of the waves coming and going.
I love being at the beach for many reasons,
but watching and listening to nature may be tops.
