Warm happy art!

All this cold weather lately has had me thinking of the warm florida sun. Where have you gone?

Here is a summer scene I just finished. I have lots of fun memories of the beach as a child and building sandcastles is one of my favorite. Feel free to download it and hang it up near your cozy work space. Just click on the image to enlarge, drag it onto your desktop, print, cut and hang. :)

Enjoy! Hope it helps gets you through the cold winter months :)

This is adorable and makes me so anxious for warmer weather! The colors in the sea and the sky are especially perfect. The crab is my favorite - I love his little rosy cheeks.

And unfortunately your Florida sunshine isn't vacationing up here, I can tell you that much.

Great scene Julissa, roll on Summer!
We had more snow this week in the U.K

I love the crab too ( I'm a cancerian so how could I not!)

Very sweet and definitely will help get me through the last bit of lingering winter in Oregon. Bring on the Spring!

I think I will print this up and keep it near my desk for inspiration. I love your style. Very nice of you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I look forward to seeing more of your work too!
