What To Paint At The Beach

Today's weather in San Diego is amazing. The only decent to do is to head to the beach and paint while my husband surfs. I grabbed my supply bag and a Moleskine watercolor journal I had stuffed in a drawer.
Sometimes I paint beach scenes when I am at the beach, but what I choose to paint depends on my mood. Today I could paint the sketch of my dog I did last winter or maybe a scene from a photo of Provence that I bought along with me to the beach.
I gave a talk on how to create more artwork by allowing yourself to paint without a definate outcome in mind.
So I have to cultivate that attitude as I paint today, I am supposed to say to myself,"something will occur in this painting". We will see how that goes....
