Sleepy Sundays: Jellies

Have you ever seen a jellyfish in its natural habitat? Ever been stung by one? (I hear it’s quite painful.)

Many moons ago, when I was just a teensy little daydreamer, there came the realization that I was very much drawn to the water. The ocean has always been a place where I find a deep calm and a strange sense of belonging. Maybe it’s the fact that my zodiac is a water sign. Perhaps, it has something to do with a past life. Whatever the case may be, I’m still fascinated by all of its mystery to this day.

This artwork was inspired by a day at the beach where I scooped up a jellyfish in my hands just to get a closer look at the details. I was careful to keep the intruiging little friend still submerged in the water. Surprisingly, I was not stung. Seconds later though, my cousin, however, was—right in the butt.

What kinds of creatures have you met at the beach?

Have a relaxing Sunday, loves! Some exciting things coming up!

Sleepy Sundays: Like Stones

 

After last weekend’s unexpected shutdown, I’m happy to present two new designs this Sunday.

Both were inspired by magnificent dreams had over a much-needed summer vacation.

Our son came to us and spoke of wonderful dreams too, so we told him, write it down.

 

Write it down.

Do you keep a journal/diary?

Have a bright Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Sandy Shores

This little scattered dance of colors and textures was inspired by something quite simple—beach sand. Since we are well into the “dog days of summer”, I figured this would be the perfect subject. One of my favorite beach activities still to this day is scouring the sands for seashells. What’s yours?

What is your favorite beach activity? Do you enjoy summer?

Have a serene Sunday!
