Found an early Valentine on the beach during the morning walkies.

This whole beach is covered at high tide. At low tide it’s perfect for walkies. That’s Skamokawa across the slough.  This is the point where Brooks Slough and Steamboat Slough meet at the Columbia River.

After our walk I had some solid studio time. Finished the large version of the happy otter and got past a sticky place on a larger canvas to discover what it wants to be (sometimes I start with a subject, other times I paint intuitively and lay down color and pattern then see what comes out).  After lunch I sat down for some Netflix and knitting and listening to the rain.  It’s been a lovely day.
