My favorite part of summer vacation is my morning walks. Every morning I grab a cup of joe and a couple canvas bags and head out. It is complete isolation. An introvert’s paradise. Not another soul for miles and miles.
It’s a driftwood paradise. Too rocky for most people’s taste. To me it’s a playground.
This year I took home 12 bags of driftwood of every shape and size.
Ohh… my poor husband who so cleverly tetris-ed all of it into our car :)
I had absolutely no intent on searching for sea glass which is the only reason I found the amount I did! I came home with a gallon-sized Ziploc!
Now home, the chaos persists :)
It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t occupy that poor husband of mine’s parking space in the driveway.
But I have slowly begun to tame the chaos. Small shapes, fin shapes, fish heads, tails… into organized chaos.
Ideas coming to fruition…
Some final pieces…
I have 8 more giant driftwood fish to complete.
Hee Hee Hee….they’re still in the driveway, but rest assured husband – I am working on it!
Love these driftwood fish sculptures!
Wonderful sculptures. I’m going to have to pay closer attention to what comes ashore.
What a wonderful posting Mary! Amazing and so inspiring.
