Gulls and Sand
Graphite, my favorite medium to work with. I won't get to visit the Oregon coast anymore because of my arthritis and restricted income, but I love remembering....... the sound of the ocean as it roars, the coarse sand - abrasive but welcome to my old bare feet, the scream of the white seagulls, the cold of the wet sand and the early morning fog..... the rampage of fantasy that takes over my mind... haunted lighthouses, star fish, tide pools, early morning fishing boats as they bounce atop the heaving ocean, wondering when the next high tide is, dreaming and hoping to see a really big ship in the distance, etc.
