Looking for Sea Glass

As some of you know, I live on the beach. My oldest son and I used to takes walks on the beach and look for sea glass. This image always reminded me of us looking for sea glass. If some of you don't know what sea glass is, it is glass from bottles that has been worn away by the sand and tides and is quite beautiful. We always hoped we would find blue or green because it was like treasure when we found it. This was done for the Everybody Art Challenge. This weeks theme is Sea/Beach. Of course, this was right up my alley especially since I've been playing with the Seaside Sketches for the past few days. So I inked this image up and decided to play along.

Here is a picture of some of the sea glass that we have found over the years. Believe it or not, it's not like finding shells, finding this type of glass is quite rare. As you can see the edges are not sharp nor is the glass crystal clear like it would normally be. I am sure it takes years to achieve this beautiful affect. Do you think that maybe on his next day off, I can talk him into taking a walk on the beach with Mom again to see what treasures we can find.

As always, thanks for looking..
