Painting on the Beach during Vacation

HI, I'm back. The family went to the beach in Rodanthe,North Carolina. Remember the movie "Nights in Rodanthe" with Richard Geer, well the famous house from the movie was right behind us as we sat on the beach. I painted on the beach as much as I could. It was so beautiful. 
We:  Gathered sea shells,
        Walked on the beach,
        ate ice cream and Brooke's brownies
        read as many novels as we could
        played cards and corn hole
        relaxed in the sun
of course we all or most of us got some virus.. a stomach one. but for most of us it was over in 24 hours..and we were back at the beach..

We had a lovely time but it's always nice to get back home. Talk to you soon! Diana --some of my paintings on the beach, That is Indian Blanket a wildflower that was everywhere.--what do you think..


  1. Sounds like a great break .. I always thought the house on Nights in Rodanthe looked too much like a set because it was so close to the ocean!
    Sorry to hear of the ill health ...
    love the colourful paintings!

  2. Beautiful work Diana, love the blanket flowers, and so happy to were able to get away to the beach!

  3. Those are beautiful scenes you painted at the beach, Diana. It looks like all of you had a great time. Your beaches on the east coast look so different from ours out west.

  4. Welcome back? You were missed!
    What do I think?
    Well I think you had a great time except for about 24 hours. !!! BJ

  5. Diana glad you are back and other than 24 hr virus...looks like you had a delightful time. Love your sketches. Take care and God bless!

  6. Oh I do love the beach paintings, all of them. And such a pretty little native flower! Where are you on your puppy wait? And oh so sorry for the stomach virus too.

  7. Thank you Vicki, they moved the house to save it from the ocean. But I was disappointed to hear the inside of the beach house was not used in the movie.Thank you Maria,I loved them too.Thank you Kathryn, I throw a ton away but keep some.Ha BJ, yes the 24 hrs weren't so good!! and we all took turns!thank you Debbie, thank you Sherry, Hopefully we 'll hear soon.. I hope next week. I'll let you know. love to you all,Diana
