The View

No, not the estro-fest television show, but the one out my window.  You’d think this would be celebrating it, but it’s not.  I know, here’s where you pull out the smallest violin player in the world to play, “Oh, I feel sorry for you,” but we moved here in October of last year and I don’t want to live here anymore.  I LOVE the ocean.  And I feel twisted having a view like that and wanting nothing but to move out.  But we all need more than just a view, and I feel it more every day, so I made this journal page about it.  You can see words painted in clouds if you really, really look (and especially if you look at where I’ve cropped the page to show them.)

The painting is acrylic in my Book of Days journal (matting added by Picasa for effect):

And here is the wispy wording:

“A beachfront house does not a home make.”  Yes, pull out the tissues.

    What a shame… it looks gorgeous! But a beachfront house does not make all people happy.

    Good luck!

  5. Hey…beaches and oceans don’t fill all of us with joy and freedom. Some of us need mountains and desserts, or concrete and condos. Hope your art an your journal help you find your way.

  6. oooo those waves, i hear those waves!

  7. Love the texture and the way the curves of the text echo those of the waves!

  9. So true happiness comes from within, not a location or what we can buy, but celebrate the good things & this artwork is one of those things, it’s great 🙂

    Thank you everyone, so much, for the lovely feedback and for understanding. This is a tough time. And Sunshineshelle, way to bring tears to my eyes. Thank you.

  11. I remember what it’s like to live in a place that does not feel like home. I hope it gets better for you soon.

  12. This is a very nice piece. I love the movement of the water.
