Summer Don’t Leave Me

One of the things that I am going to miss most about Florida (aside from family) is the heat. I am the girl who sits on the couch with a blanket in the summer, so needless to say, I like me some heat.

And now that we’re moving to a place that is not exactly known for warm temperatures, and fall is pretty much here, something is starting to bubble up…

I have lived 30 minutes (or less) away from the beach for the last seven years and probably touched my toes in the sand less than 15 times. I totally took the beach for granted.

And now we are leaving and I won’t really have the opportunity. So what’s a girl to do?

Well, I guess I just have to figure out how to bring the beach with me if it really menas that much. So I am thinking some artwork might be the best way to go.

Maybe something from Dave Conrey at Beach Cities (a print shop where Dave is able to combine his skills as an artist with graphic design)? I really like the textures and layers in his work. And aside from sand and surf themes…Hello? How could I move to Seattle without a print like this?

Hehe. My favorite pieces from Beach Cities are the ones above (Double Shift and Golden State). How about you? Do you have a favorite from Dave’s shop?

Oh, beautiful art. I love the colors and textures, it perfectly captures the feel of the beach. I would know, I love me some all-day beach adventures….so I won’t be leaving Florida anytime soon.

I too cover myself in blankets in the summer. I love heat!


I also sit with a blanket over me in the summer time too, glad to know I’m not the only one. I can see why you love Dave’s work, beautiful. :0)
