So today I started spreading smiles with shells on our favorite island, Sanibel!! I painted 2 shoeboxes full of these guys during this quarantine!!! Here's a few examples!
After spreading a few at some favorite spots, I went on a long slow therapeutic walk on the beach!!
There were lots of birds,
can you see him in that crystal clear water??
This is turtle season on Sanibel, there were soooo many nests! See the track?
This nest was too close to the water....
on my way back up the beach, the turtle folks had moved it up above the high tide line! Hopefully that will be me one day!!
The shelling wasn't great, I managed to restock some of my collection of shells to paint, found this perfect tiny Nutmeg....
and this beautiful Scallop....the picture doesn't do it justice....so Bright!!
Pardon the swollen hands....I got to get back into shape, plan on as many of these walks as I can do!!! (If I can walk tomorrow). ;)
Facebook videos of the beach has really helped me during this down time so I thought I would add on to it.....so peaceful! Turn up the volume and listen to it all....guaranteed to make you relax!!!!
