I wanted to do something special with the photos I took a few years ago, when my mom and I spent some much needed mother daughter time at the beach in Florida. I took the photos the day after my dad had his brain surgery and we were told everything would be okay.
So knowing he was in good hands and seeing him laugh and joke with the nurses, my mom and I decided to go to the beach and unwind, we were both so exhausted.
We headed to the beach in Sarasota, where my mom was raised and where I spent a large part of my childhood. When I was little my grandmother would wake me up in the wee hours of the morning, packing up a breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast coffee and juice and we would head to the beach for a sunrise picnic. Hours were spent picking up seashells and playing in the water.
Going to Siesta Key beach and unwind was just what the doctor ordered, spending the whole day there talking and laughing was incredibly healing. After looking at these photos for a few years I decided to try something different and create small 6″ x 6″ pieces of art, incorporating mixed media and paint, which worked out really well and so did my dad’s surgery.
