High flying kite

Nothing is like a week at the beach. It’s like a week of Sundays. You know, the kind of Sundays where you sleep in, you casually get up and stay in your jammies all morning reading the paper or watch television or sit outside and listen to the birds while basking in the warm morning sun. Maybe eat breakfast around noon munching all day. The lazy kind of Sundays.Bright light at beach I had the most fantastic week at the beach the week after Labor Day. The beach frenzy is over and the beach can sometimes feel abandoned. The locals are all back to work, the kids are in school and I have the beach to myself. I relish it.

We go to the beach as a large family and everyone does what they want to do. Me, I like to just park myself right there in front of the waves with a good book, plenty of iced tea, sunglasses, a beach umbrella while smothered in sunscreen. Ah… heaven.

I’m so lucky as to have a husband who likes to be a play baby and entertains Asher (my son) while I pamper myself in the sand. They love going from beach to pool, pool to beach all day. We trade a little while he gets to catch up with cousins at the pool while tossing a ball or playing corn hole toss while having “adult talk” and I get to watch Asher’s imagination come alive as he builds elaborate sand castles complete with a village outside of the moat.

As promised here’s another picture of my little feathered friend. He is now referred to as my beach crow muse. All the week he stalked me. He was so brave. It seemed like he was posing for me. Gently reminding me of the promise I made myself a while back of a new crow/raven series to paint. My beach crow muse stalking me from a beach chair

So when I got home and after I finished the endless laundry we had accumulated, I started this painting. It is still a work in progress. *UPDATE

A work in progress of what will become "Beach Crow"
