Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of two children wading at Torrey Pines State Park


I was painting very quickly, just doing exercises to try to capture the movement of the water. When these two youngsters walked into my sketch, there was still room for them, so I added them in, and it made a picture.

The morning was warm, but the water was still so chilly and wild. The two kids relished the waves and paid little attention to their parents’ worry about the cold.  It was wonderful to see so many people out enjoying the sun and water.

    • Thank you for the comment, Deb, I think you put the right words on it, I gave up trying to describe the impact the children had on me and my sense of connection to Torrey Pines. But it was their sweetness, or perhaps the way they seemed to experience the beach in a fresh and tender way, that made me take note of them.
