I have the wonderful opportunity to live here part time for the next 10 months or so. My husband and I are renting a little house near the beach while he is working over here. Which means that I am becoming an expert on beach combing. I have a tide chart app on my iphone. I have learned to wash the sand off of my shoes before I come in the house. And my pockets always have little seashells or bits of beach glass in them.
As an artist, I am really happy to be immersed in a unique environment and new surroundings. There is something so restorative and relaxing about ocean waves. I’m looking forward to seeing how this affects my creative process. More to come soon from the Oregon coast! -Vinita
