Even though it is snowing in Kansas....

I am inspired by ocean life. I am dreaming of beaches and warm weather... fishes and coral... sand between my toes, and NO snow shoveling! I have always been inspired by the beauty that the ocean holds, so it isn't surprising that I am continuing to produce work that reflects my love and interest in it.

These next two are custom pieces which I have not titled yet, but are equally influenced my ocean life. Both are made of fossilized coral.

On these cold, cold days, I am dreaming of California....

Fantastic as always Dawn!! I especially love the last piece... The designs and colors are incredible! Your 'Manta Ray' really comes across well too! :)

Believe it or not it is very cold right now here in central Florida. We are in the 30's this week! At least we don't have to deal with snow... but too cold for day sailing... rats! We hope to get the boat out soon though and I'm going to try and get some photos :)
