Journal Pages From the Beach

This is our annual beach week with friends - and we've been lucky to have several hours each day to walk on the beach.  I love collecting and painting shells, but I haven't found many yet.  Here are two scallop and two broken moon snail shells.


My husband made wonderful, fresh black sea bass for dinner with a green sauce made from cilantro, lime, and several other ingredients.  I sketched the fish before it went on the grill.



I just love seeing all your lovely sketches and studies. The recipe you shared with us sounds delicious! I bet you miss being there ... I'm pretty sure I would! nancy

That recipe sounds delicious. Beach themes are my favorite. Nice job with the sea shells

The sketches are terrific. Thanks for sharing.

Your shells are lovely.

Hi Shirley, great pages from Venice and Long Island beaches. For many years I lived on Long Island and spent many lovely summers at the beach. I confess a twinge of envy together with fond memories from viewing your delightful sketches.

Nice looking fish. Your few shells look great too. Some years the shells just don't seem to be as plentiful.

I love your frisky lobster!
