Summer: Water, Salt, Shells With the Beach

At Work – Nature’s Sketchbook

Nature’s Sketchbook Favorites

It was a busy two weeks of art classes this summer in Livermore.  My group of students had fun with salt and  plastic wrap and how they create different effects in Wild Watercolor.

The Nature’s  Sketchbook group showed the natural beauty of birds, seashells, and flowers. Nature’s subtle colors and textures became part of their drawings.  They were great students of Mother Nature in the class held at the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District summer classes at the Community Center.

After ten days of teaching, it was time to return to my art.  The following weekend in July it was the Art Under the Oaks show at Alden Lane Nursery. It is always a fun show and I enjoy visiting with friends and sharing my work with those who stop by.

Then in August it was time to head back home to Massachusetts and spend some time painting by the beaches off 6A on Cape Cod.  Check back again to see what the area inspires.
