Conch Shell - Lin Frye

I have yet to make it to the beach this year, and so I take pleasure in sandy, salty-air daydreams and photo references that remind me that the Atlantic Ocean is a mere 3 1/2 hours away! I thought I'd paint a last homage to summer, since today's temps are supposed to be near 90F and I'll be working outdoors for our college's Open House in celebration of our 40th Anniversary.

I'll be scarce today since the five hours of activities are non-stop -- afterwards, I'm heading home to enjoy a bit of the weekend. I'll try to catch up later tonight.

Meanwhile -- have a great day. The sun is supposed to be shining all day today! Vitamin D!

  1. Beautiful painting! I can almost hear the ocean.

  2. What a story this tells: the tide is out and the day is ending. Such a peaceful scene.

  3. so, so nice! i'm on the west coast (Arizona), but LOVE the Atlantic. haven't been to either coast this summer.
