Paint Party Friday - Week 24 - Walking in my World

Happy Paint Party Friday! The summer is almost over here and back to school season is fast approaching. Next weekend I will be away, taking my daughter back to university in Victoria, B.C. Not sure if I will have a post then or if I will have to sit out my first PPF. We'll see. 

This week I'd like to show you a few more pages in my "Walking in my World" journal where I am trying to capture sights I have seen while out for a stroll. Last week was based on the rocky river bed and this week, the sandy beach!

Shadows in the Sand

Tracks in the Sand

Beach Bonfire

I hope you have a great last week of August and a fun time at PPF! I look forward to seeing your paintings!

    Sheesh, I am not sure how the journals rotate, but I hope I get to see your work without a comp. screen...I am so excited to see the illustrations of yours in real life. I admire you and your artwork. I have an idea brewing at IA. Something for fun...easy and cheap.
