The Realizing the Beauty of Delaware Series
After growing up in Delaware and attending college at the University of Delaware I had decided it was time for a new place with new surroundings. Now, when I come back to Delaware I am more aware of all the beauty that exists, that at one time I had taken for granted. One of my favorite areas is Cape Henlopen State Park; it is the beach I grew up going to and one that I always find myself coming back to. There are many late afternoons that I have spent strolling the beaches along with my dogs, family and friends. Many of these strolls lead to my inspiration. We have such amazing beaches that glow of pinks, reds, oranges, vivid lime greens, light blues and dark blues, it is constantly changing with the light of the day and the colors are too numerous to list. The rocks of the jetty create beautiful patterns; interesting shapes and the textures on top of the rock are so diverse no two are the same. After feeling this new spark of inspiration for the landscape that I grew up with I decided that this would be my project.
