Memorial Day at the beach

Cabana retreat, 7x9" watercolor

I am so happy with my life as a painter that there is no room for envy for the life or things of my friends’. Even so, if I were to be envious, I would envy my friend Debbie for the adorable little beach house in Emerald Isle that she and her husband Phil bought just a couple months ago. It is absolutely adorable and full of furnishings and accessories that I would want if the place was my own.

When Debbie called Saturday with an invitation to spend the night there, I knew I had way too much on my plate to consider going. However, she understood that I would be getting up early to paint with a buddy, and that, mostly I would be there to sleep and have dinner out with her. I made it to the beach in time to paint this little watercolor which will be my hostess gift to her as soon as I’ve matted it.


  1. Lucky Debbie. You know how much I treasure the watercolor you did of my house and the one I purchased that you did of my guest apartment. You are one talented lady.

  2. Hey thank you, Jerry. It’s people like you and Debbie that, through your friendship and hospitality, have made my life so much fun. So I am grateful to all those who have welcomed me as a guest.
