Mixed Media Monday - "On the beach"

Hi Everyone....what a fun theme this week since we just got back from an extended long weekend at Wasaga Beach...This is a piece I did a while back and it is so perfect for this week's Mixed Media Monday theme...."On the beach"

I was away helping with some family projects....and I also managed to finish all the rough pages of my latest children's book....I always get more inspiration after seeing a beautiful sunset.....now they head off for approval!!!

Have a wonderful Monday!!!

Hugs
Diana

I left a comment a few minutes ago but I am not sure if it went through or not. Strange things were a'happening on the blog.
Just wanted to say that I love your gorgeous beach scene which brings back happy memories of family picnics by the sea.

Wonderful scene!
Today it is raining here so no beach......
I went to the beach last week with the doggies my husband and Felix to have lunch there.
It is still too cold for bathing but still always nice to be there, especially with that little people.

Have a nice week!

Sorry the weather wasn't that great over the weekend. I hate to say it is sunny and in the mid 20"s today.
