Beach, Bay, and Breezes Ink Drawing

This is one of those sketches you create when you just want to sit down and imprint the day and place in your mind. A warm sun toned down by a jaunty breeze, a coffee, a sketchbook, and a happily placed bench provide everything you artist's soul could desire at this moment. The flow of ink over the smooth bristol paper is a joy. So the pen records:

A small lighthouse overlooks a harbor and bay. Sailors take advantage of sun and wind. Other people stroll the breakwater or enjoy the beach. The relaxed busy-ness of a day at the shore creates the narrative of this 6" by 6" drawing (15 cm by 15cm)

The potential buyer will probably also recall precious moments at waterside as I do writing this on a brisk January day.
