Daily Sketch 06/12/12 ‘At the Beach’

In past summers we used to vacation away from the Arizona heat and travel to the beach. I’m sure we won’t be the only ones not able to go this year, but that doesn’t prevent this beach baby from dreaming about it!

I was recently asked to create artwork for my High School reunion, which is to be held in 2013…you guessed it…at the beach. With Arizona temperatures already reaching into the 100’s, my mind exploded with a wealth of suppressed visions of beach umbrellas and towels in the sand, the smell of sun block and the steady, soft rhythm of waves.

The mind is a powerful tool and believe it or not, calling up memories of sand and surf actually helps me through the summer Southwest heat!

About Wendy Fallon

By day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am an artist and creative writer. Living in Phoenix, AZ with my husband Tim, I find the urban wilderness in which we live to be endlessly fascinating. Our home is tucked up against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal slashing across the base of the mountain provides inspiration for paintings, drawings, and sitings of wild coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards and constant change.
