From King's Beach

After feeling thoroughly depressed this morning after yesterday when we went to celebrate a life, which means they are dead, I decided I had to get my act together.
John had gone fishing so I tidied up all sorts of loose ends and after lunch sat to watch Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole in how to steal a million dollars, it was delightful and made me feel so much better.
This is the result of the picking out my paints and brush, still the same limited palette and not as good as the last one but I really wanted to show the orange on the granite boulders. I presume it is some sort of algae.

Penny, this a fabulous painting! I really love the strong, vibrant colours, I think it adds to the description of your landscape.

Beautifully painted, too.

Oh, Penny, your forthright view of the world always puts me in a good mood. I know what you mean about "celebrating a life"...well, yes, but...
The painting is wonderful, vibrantly, brilliantly alive. Keep it up.
