Sea Grass

- by Rita C. Ford

This week's theme: Summer Landscapes

With the arrival of Labor Day, we begin saying our good-byes to summer. The days will soon be short and the air crisp and cool. Before we turn to Autumn, Art of the Day takes one last look at the landscapes of summer.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Sea Grass by Artist Rita C. Ford
Incredible as it may seem, it wasnít until after I was 40 years young that I had the opportunity to vacation at the beach. Oh, I had seen the ocean, but I never actually spent any time just walking along the shore, watching the sea gulls or just people watching. But most of all, I was just totally overwhelmed by the ocean itself.

This summer we spent our vacation time in Panama City Beach and the beautiful shore there is the theme for this series, ďThe Emerald CoastĒ.

The first painting in the series, Sea Grass, depicts the profusion of weeds growing near the shore which seems to be as ageless as the wind that blows constantly through them. Although you canít paint the glorious sounds of the beach, your memories will bring back the oceanís timeless sound as the earth breaths in and out, and listen for the rustle of the sea weed as the wind blows inward from the Gulf of Mexico.
