The beach this week

The other evening as I walked along the beach I noticed the light hitting the tall grass and the golden glow it created.

Where does inspiration come from?  Sometimes it comes from the craziest places!

One evening over Labor Day weekend my husband & I attended a concert at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano.  It was a fabulous evening with al fresco dining, music and dancing.

The band that evening was "The Fab Four", a terrific Beatles tribute band.  For the next week or so I had 2 Beatles songs running through my head - Yellow Submarine & All You Need is Love.  One night when I sat down to work on some canvases there was a paper heart on the table.  As I picked up the heart I couldn't help but notice the lyrics running through my you need is love......  So I went with it, and this canvas is the result.  As I worked I wasn't sure where it was headed, I just experimented with different materials - collaging paper, molding paste, oil pastels & acrylic paint - and just had fun.  Not sure yet if there will be a Yellow Submarine canvas.
