Frequently, when I’m out walking, minding my own business, a special moment cries out “paint me”. In this case my wanderings took me along the edge of Elk Creek (aka Ecola Creek) in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Sometimes, it takes a while for inspiration to reach fruition, but it’s always worth the wait.
If you’re a beach person and a morning person like I am, you probably love the first golden rays of sunlight as they kiss our pristine coastline. Overnight, with a change of tide, the beach sand is once again, ever so slightly revised and washed clean. Every morning there’s smooth sand just waiting for fresh footprints.
