Choiceless as a Beach

Soft Light

"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea".  Anne Morrow Lindberg

Have always loved that quote since I first read her book Gift From the Sea many years ago. 
This painting Soft Light is a reminder to me to be patient. 
Do you know someone who could use that gentle hint?
Soft Light is one of 18 works that are part of my painting exhibit at the High Springs Artist Co-op which opens tomorrow evening, Friday. September 6 from 7 to 9 pm.
If you are in the area, I'd love for you to stop by and see this lovely cooperative gallery. Overflowing with the creativity of all the member artists, you are sure to find something to delight. 

I am fortunate to have my art on exhibit during the month of September at several venues. in addition to High Springs Art Co-op,  Melrose Bay Art Gallery in Melrose, FL and also at the Saint Augustine Art Association's Fall Member Show.
I look forward to becoming more involved with that group of wonderful artists.
And of course, my art it's always available on my web site. www.karenfrose.com

So serene, I love it. Just what I'd love to paint if I painted in oils. I'm participating in the 30/30 challenge, too (in watercolor), and I'll be watching your work. It's inspiring! PS - That gold frame is perfect, too - can you tell me, did you get that frame from an art supply place?
