Walking along the sandy and rocky beaches on the island where I live it is so much fun to beach comb among the debris brought to shore by the waves from the changing tides. Today I found a small black rock covered with large empty barnacle shells, the remains of a battered snail shell, a left over crab claw from a crab bake and a large piece of driftwood. All of these were included in my graphite sketch on paper after I returned from my walk. It was meditative, soothing and relaxing to spend an afternoon sketching. I apologize for the poor quality camera on my scanner; one of these days I’ll have to invest in a model of better quality.
