The Sand Street Beach
Stony Brook, where I live, is in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. Surrounded by the sea, you can see large and small various style of beaches wherever you go. Sandstreet Beach, especially in Stony Brook, is my favourite.
It's called a beach, but it's a very calm and quiet sea with no roaring waves. Most impressive is the small cottage with the red roof on the sandbar.
Especially when the tide goes out, it becomes the place for swans and seagulls that have come to play.
Above all, when I personally have something to think about or meditate on, when I come here, nature quietly gives me some answers.
Today, I drew this beach with watercolor paint.
There is not enough time to explain how nature has given me best solutions and enlightenment. Sometimes it's better to express myself with a picture rather than explain it.
When I was frustrated while drawing, it was because of my personality that didn't like to show it. I always feel sorry for my work and my clients when it comes to things that have to be decorated well, stand out, take a nice profile picture, and appeal to others. Because it is inherently difficult for me. I enjoy quietly enjoying nature, listening to music and painting. Of course, I also love meeting and getting to know people. Despite my shy personality, I have many friends. But I don't know how to wrap me nicely. I just like to draw and draw. Sometimes I don't know what my quiet daily life will bring to me, but I decided to love the undecorated, raw me more. It's also the answer I get every time I walk on this beach.
