road trip!

Today Mary Sheehan -Winn and I drove up to Crane Beach in Ipswich so I could take a photo of the beach for another t-shirt design for the trustees of reservations. We made a day of it-the wonderful Rt 1 in Saugus- a fantastic barn sale and white elephant shop in Essex
Lots of treasures! We were restrained, just poked and puttzed- loved it!
A lovely walk on the beach- I accomplished my mission, then we painted the fragrant beach roses and dunes. Today's weather was perfect- a little breeze, sunny and comfy.

We finished up with an ice-cream cone at Woodman's-a perfectly fantastic day!

Nice painting and what a great day you had. Ice cream and painting with a friend, it can't be beat.

Lush colors and a great sense of movement in this painting, Sally. It's nearly lyrical.
