  8. Krista, I swear! Your head must be filled with so many pleasant things, I'm sure it's almost impossible for you to create anything else but! This particular piece made me long for the ocean so bad... Well, maybe it's time for a vacation, yes? (^_^) oxox

  11. That's called eternal optimism. :) Oh, this is sun-shiny and happy! I can hear the lapping of the waves. I want to throw on a bathing suit and romp on the sand. I want to go to the Cape!

  12. Oh I had something in mind like springy colors and then I read Bella's comment and all I want now is to see her in a bathing suit at the Cape!

  13. I agree! Spring is ALWAYS a welcome sight for many of us New Englanders... but once it starts to warm up I automatically fast forward to the balmy days of summer.
    Gorgeous art work with lovely colors and form.
