This Bud's for You!

Yesterday was one of those gloomy days. It was overcast and looked like it could have rained but never did. I did try to venture out and attempt to go grocery shopping, but every place was still so crowded I quickly did a hasty retreat and decided to put it off until today. Instead I decided to paint up more sea glass.

This piece I decided to name "Tropical Nights." It was most likely a beer bottle since the sea glass is amber. For some reason I was in the mood for a "tropical" look. The little sailboat reminded me of a time when I went sailing with Mom and Jack on their boat just off the gulf in Florida. Gosh that seems like it was so long ago now.

Anyway, this piece makes me wimsical and remember old times. I miss you Mom!
