Thoughts on Life, Art, Photography, Technology, Teaching and Travel…..
I kept waiting for Hurricane Earl to slam into Carteret County last night, but luckily we dodged that bullet and it stayed out in the ocean and headed further north. We got some rain and a little wind, but for the most part all the hype coming out of the news was just that…”hype”. People get so worked up over these weather events and the media fuels their stress and anxiety. I did get to the beach right before last night’s curfew and got a few shots. The ocean looked like a giant washing machine the way the waves and surf were churning.
This guy (below) was cool just sitting in the surf with his boots up on the little bench.
They even had Mama Mia’s Italian Ice stand Boarded Up.
I have the day off because they closed the college so with that said I think I’ll work on my paintings. I’ve been working on these two little paintings for a week now. The hardest part of painting for me is knowing when to walk away and leave it alone. Ok…these are after fine tuning them one more time this morning for about an hour. Working with a palette knife. I love that tool!
