See Sea

Two paintings down, 363 to go.

I am longing for the sea.  I daydream of waking in the early morning silence, wrapping a sweater around my shoulders, and sliding into my sandals with sleep still in my mind.  Only a few people are there in the earliest morning.  Birds are hopping in the sand and careening through the sky; the sun is just beginning to stir from its slumber under the waves.  I can hear the whooshing of the water and feel my hair blowing as I rest my attention on the shells at my feet.
