Seashore Friends

I have been painting shorebirds and I thought I would share them with you....
I used to live by the water until I was 21...then have lived many places....but my favorite place is by the sea......there is nothing so wonderful than walking on a beach...or just sitting and listening


to the waves roll in...and watching these little birds run so fast catching their meal as the waves roll back to the sea..... how marvelous God made them ... long legs...and long peaks, perfect for running on sand and digging for those little things they eat.....:)



I now live in the Midwest .....and wow do I miss them and that ocean.... If you live by the sea.... enjoy it... all of it...and say hello for me.... :)


Here is my favorite the Redknot.... he is the long distance traveler...from the tip of S America to the Arctic!!! stopping in Maryland for a fast meal of horseshoe crab eggs...yum....
then on to have their young in the Artic.... what a bird!!!

Wish I could look out the window and see one of those shorebirds--it would mean I was living at the beach. I love how their legs move when they run up and down away from the waves. They look like sticks. You think they'd get tired of it.

Keep sharing your gift with us,we love to see the wonder of God's creation.

Your paintings are really beautiful. I was brought up by the ocean and a river and the sounds of certain birds bring back such lovely memories...
