Creative Expressions: White Water and Pelicans watercolor

There are just some places one is called to ... for me that is any place with water, but particularly the Pacific Coast with its crashing waves and elegant broad-winged pelicans.

Since I live in Colorado, I'm not able to get to the coast anymore, but using the coffee stain texture below that I created this morning, and rushing river and pelican images I took here in Colorado, I was able to create my dreamscape--a place I can run off to when I need a break.

Feel free you download this 450px, 300 dpi texture Playing-450px.png and see what
you can do with it (right click image, Save Image As); all I ask is you link back
to this post ...oh, and I'd love it if you'd share your link with me. Thanks.  ;->

Thanks for visiting. It's always nice to see you here. Enjoy your weekend, my friends!


  1. This is beautiful! I'm pulled to the ocean myself, although I've never seen the Pacific. I just scrolled through your latest posts. I'm so glad you are taking this workshop. You need to keep up with this side of yourself! You're too talented not to.

  2. This turned out awesome! Love your texture and combining the photograph, it really looks like a water color painting.
    I love being by the water too, we live by Lake Michigan so the ocean is not an option. One of my dream vacations is to the Pacific Northwest...

  3. Beautiful! You are quite talented.

  4. So lovely. It is wonderful seeing you so engaged again.


I'm so glad you stopped by! Hope you'll leave a message so I know you were here. I love to hear from my visitors. ;->
