Art: Summers of Beaches

I’m not much of a beach person. I’m a huge everywhere person, but not a beach person in particular. Forests, lawns, libraries, cafes, gardens, busy streets, alleys, blanket forts, pirate ships, beaches – all great – but if I’m going to really enjoy a beach, I’m going to want shade, and a place to set up with something to draw with or read.

Come to think of it, that might be true of any place I go.

With the onset of an early Summer, I’ve been out touring the beaches with my canvas bag full of drawings and favourite books. Isn’t that how a Summer should be? Of course it is. That and lots of other things.

Here are the results of my adventures so far this year.

As I started this last drawing yesterday, a group of young violinists from PRISMA showed up and played a full performance for the public. I got to draw this while listening to them play. It was marvellous.

And here’s a couple of others from past years.

Oh, and here’s a bonus bird wearing a top-hat and smoking a long cigarette.

Birds can also be fancy gentlemen.
