A few weeks ago we took a family trip to the beach. One day M sat down and said, "Let's draw shells!" How could I say no to that? So we drew shells together.
Then I made a coloring page. Then we came home and I kept drawing.
I started playing with color and texture from some watercolors images I made with this piece in mind.
Charlie suggested I use a photograph of sand he took while we were at the beach. I tried it and I liked it! I have a feeling it won't be too long before Fox plays an even greater role in the process too, but in the meantime, I like thinking of this piece as a collaboration between Mabel, Charlie and me!
