looking for seashells with Dad


Hi friends! 
Thank you for all of your comments about my last post, I had fun with that song!
Now, if you're listening, take in the sounds of the ocean...

Over the last few days I've been able to work on another fabric collage.
This is me and my Dad taking a walk on Ocean Beach in Oregon 1966.
I like to think that my love for the ocean began right here, on the beach, looking for seashells with Dad.








Thanks for dropping by.
Hope your week is off to a great start!

Becca
