What the ocean blows in…

This is the third day of rough seas thanks for the first “tropical wave” pre-hurricane season. What most fascinating of beach walks is that every single day brings new experiences and finds. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Honing my skills…

I realize that each painting I’ve done has a different feel to them. It also seems that while I try to pick a scene that’s simple so my work will be less, in reality EVERYTHING has detail. Never thought I’d spent HOURS on clouds. The challenge of painting continues to be fun, so I’ll keep on keeping on. Here’s painting number three, the last one from my classes. Actually, I only began it during my last class so have replied on my husband’s critiquing to help me make decisions during the way.

As always, I’m more than ready to hear your opinions.

The scene is looking South to Anglin’s Pier in Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida. I included Pelicans, a favorite for me. Can you find the “heart”? Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Ebb and flow…

Always the same.

Always different.

Always awesome.

A daily, minute by minute

Evidence of miracles.

Changes every moment. Constant, reliable change. Same but different. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Gentle yet powerful. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Ebb and flow at the same time! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Shades of ocean blue…

The ocean showed layers of colors this past windy week. I wasn’t sure if the camera would capture the many variations, but it did so fairly well. It’s not unusual to see color change during the days but we don’t usually see such variety at one time.

Recent winds have created waves over the coral reefs that Lauderdale by the Sea is famous for; best shore diving in the U.S. Great snorkeling for myself. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Warm thoughts….

This winter has spread cold and snow in usually warm climates. Here, as a respite, are images of sunny, warmer, Florida. May your thoughts and hearts be warmed. Happy New Year.

Strong willed…
