“Beach Ball” #WorldWatercolorGroup

IMG_20160904_140149“Beach Ball” was the prompt for #WorldWatercolorGroup today.  Here I have a standard beach ball, nothing special.  I was a muck about with a bucket and shovel kind of kid.  My favorite bucket was blue.  I made many a sand castle with it and my white shovel.  Beach balls had a tendency to float or blow away.  Watching it bob off into great deep dark depths that one couldn’t possibly swim to was rather stressful.  I am sure many a tear has been shed over the loss of a prettily colored beach ball.  Ergo mucking about with my bucket and shovel.  Lifting rocks to see what was under, finding stray sand dollars or sea shells.  The idyllic day at the beach for this kid.  Oh and a lot of swimming.  There was none of that laying on a towel sun bathing stuff happening for me.  Cheers!  PEACE

    Thanks, Susan. You’ve just reminded me of a traumatic time when I had a wonderfully large beach ball (I was very little) which blew away never to be seen again. I spent all holiday looking for that ball and never found it… I’ve never found another ball like it. I like your painting, however – I will not moan all the way through this comment! 😀
