"my garden--like the beach"

(9x12 sheet)

A subject somewhat new to me, but, with summer coming, I expect to gather many reference photos. This is from a photo taken by my Monday painting teacher, Marie Natale.
I couldn't decide whether of not to put water in ... Maybe on the next one, i'll just leave it out.


My Garden -- like the Beach
by Emily Dickinson

My Garden -- like the Beach --
Denotes there be -- a Sea --
That's Summer --
Such as These -- the Pearls
She fetches -- such as Me

Beautiful as always, Laura (and so is your little cat). In Western Australia, we are welcoming the softer autumn weather as happily as you welcome summer. Best wishes.
