I’ve found consistently that people who love the coast are “beach combers” at heart. We just can’t stop bringing what we find home. I personally must have a hundred of these floats laying along the fence in my side yard. There’s just something about finding a prize the sea has deposited right in front of us that keeps us walking and searching for treasure.
This watercolor was the official art for Cannon Beach’s 2012 Stormy Weather Arts Festival and is available as a giclèe print.
