The Seashell Girl Might Just Have An Artistic Side…

I love living in Rockport, Texas for many reasons. Among those reasons, it’s one of the most scenic little township’s on the gulf coast, if not in the lone star  state. Of course, that’s my personal opinion, and you can come see for yourself if you’re curious. Another alluring reason to love this picturesque town is it is home to local artists and sports some really fantastic art galleries which makes it very diverse and colorful. Certain times of the year you can drive down Fulton Road and see artist that have set up their spots, right on the edge of the water entrenched in painting their masterpieces, it’s so fascinating to me, they all look so peaceful. This past weekend we had a houseful of out of town company and my girlfriend and I set out to do some sightseeing in town. I had expressed my desire to stop by The Rockport Center for the Arts so I could inquire about art classes. Terry and I went in and I got the information I was after and we spent the next two hours browsing the art that was being showcased. One particular artist caught our eyes. Her name is Pamela Fulcher, she is a photographer and her technique is putting her fabulous photographs onto aluminum. These were stunning pieces. The annual Rockport Art Festival chose to feature her art on their 2014 art festival poster.IMG_0064_2

 

I have begun my own journey into the art world by shelling some bottles with some of the personal treasures consisting of seashells, and sea glass, found by me, of course, right here in Rockport, Fulton Road, Howard Murph Park, and St. Joe’s Island Port Aransas, Texas. The act of this task has unleashed the artist within and I have this strong desire to paint. Paint, really? I have never even considered myself artsy, at all. Even more strange is the desire to paint this picture I snapped off of the end of our pier. My husband and I were fishing off the end of our neighborhoods 650′ pier, he said “turn around and take a picture of that”.snapped this incredible photo with nothing more than my iPhone 5!
