Thoughts of you from a sandy beach

It looks like the Summer of Color Challenge is almost over! I have enjoyed sampling those fabulous flavors in my art. For week 5, it was a "wild  and reckless"  colored sherbert that we used as inspiration. It is described as A green apple, blue raspberry, and fruit punch flavored sherbet party. Fruit has never had so much fun." - Baskin Robbins. After a visit to Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina, I decided to do a beach piece for this challenge. I've included some altered photos I took at the end of this post.

I decided to use the 100 Proof Press Victorian Woman in Beachwear as my subject. She is seated under a palm tree that I colored in front of a watercolored accented beach scene. There's some blue lace, a bingo card and a painted background. The sentiment reads "Thoughts of you from a sandy beach".

Thinking of you dear friends from our sandy beach,
take care, gerri
