Kite Day

Click on image to enlarge.

Simple painting of a woman and child enjoying a kite flying day at the beach.

It’s been too chilly to go swimming and usually is till May, and even then the water is still chilly till it get mid to later June. But  one can always take a walk or one a windy day…fly a kite.

  1. I love it Debbie, and inspired me to buy a kite after work to entertain my little one with this weekend :)

  2. What a serene and gorgeous scene, Deb. Lovely!

  3. Lovely scene :-)

  4. I love it! I reminds me of times at the ocean when Kris was wee:) the ocean is the best way to keep a kid entertained. So peaceful.

    • I’m glad to hear my painting brought back a nice memory for you!
      Thank you for the lovely comment!
      Love and Hugs, xx

  5. Lovely piece Debs – and brought back a good memory… :)

    Love and hugs!


    • Oh good, it brought back an old memory for you…that make me smile, Prenin!
      Thanks Hon,
      Love and Hugs, xx

  6. Beautiful scene, Deb and very pleasing to the eye!

  7. Sometimes those walks along the beach can be among the most fun days…
    and the most inspiring, too! This wonderful piece is more proof of that, Deb! Very, very nicely done! :)

    • I enjoy walking along the beach. Sometimes I find little treasures that the sea leaves behind. We get our share of windy days out here that are not so good for fishing according to Mitch…gets too much sea-weed on the line. So we enjoy watching the children fly kites while we take our walks.
      Thanks Bob!

    I love this painting. Wonderful. And I keep staring at the clouds, like they could move any moment.

    • If those clouds would start moving I think I could make a descent buck of it…lol
      Thanks Hanne!
      Hugs, xx

  9. Wow, Deb!!!
    Beautiful painting! The sky looks so real (again)!! Ahhh I want to go there and play with them.
    With our Wombat Team of course.
    And the dogs.

    • The Wombies are at their beach house. And there having a grand ole time. This one here was just me thinking of a kite flying day at the beach.
      Thanks Cha!
      Hugs, xx

  10. You have captured every child’s resentment although you probably did not plan it. See, it is adult who holds the string and actually flies the kite not the child. It was that way with my father. Let’s fly a kite meant me watching him fly a kite.

    • In the picture the little girl is learning to fly a kite
      But I do understand what you are saying, Carl
      Thank You!
      Hugs, xx

  11. Ha I see an old man’s face in the clouds.

    • You do? That’s wonderful. One should always be able to see figures of something in the sky!
      I’m going to study myself now to see what I can find.
      Thanks bearman!
      Hugs, xx

  12. This is gorgeous Deb
    and looks like such a lovely place to be.
    I hope you’re having a ball !

    Gary xox

    • Yes, the beach is a lovely place to be….you know that. :-)
      You must be getting into your Fall/Autumn season now…yes?
      I’m enjoying myself here. The air is clear, the sun is bright. Soothing to my soul!
      Love and Hugs, xx

  13. Flying a kite at the beach sounds like a wonderful idea, and here it’s windy enough for it!
    Wish you a great day Deb
    Hugs, Nikki

  14. Looks a little storm out there. Hopefully the kite is not big enough to take the flier off into the heavans!

  15. Would have to be one of my favorites.

  16. Romantycznie Deb…very nice weekend ;-)

  17. that’s pretty cool!

  18. Beautiful :) the beach and the ocean just look so nice and it just is a soothing feeling, well to me it is, but I love the beach. Hmmm, maybe I need a kite ;) it’s been awhile hugs xx

  19. Let’s go fly a kite :) Nice, Deb. Love, cat.

    • Yes, join me my friend. I would love for you and I too take turns flying the kite and bonding our friendship even more….ready?…let’s go!. :-)
      Thank you, Cat. It’s always so nice to have a visit from you, my dear friend.
      Love and Hugs, xx

  20. that’s beautiful :)

    Hey I remember as a child I would often go kite flying
    and what fun it was too my great friend, one never sees
    children making kites these days or even flying toys
    aeroplanes, I guess the 21st Century is all about the
    techno world of enjoyment :)

    Have a lovely day at the beach Deb
    and I hope that it is a lot warmer for you :)

    Androgoth XXx

    • I never see children make kites anymore either, and around here they just buy them at the local shops…they all have them.
      Yes, techo is the thing these days.
      I’m glad I brought to your mind a memories of kite flying, Andro!
      Thank you, Andro, you have a wonderful night now!
      Hugs, XXx

  22. Hey where did my comment go…
    Its so beautiful mom and kid enjyoing a beautiful beach and flying kite
    you always paint beautiful stories Deb
    hugs n love :)

    • There wasn’t a comment here from you, Soma….that I could find anyway. I even looked in the trash in case I goofed some how…nothing there. Are you thinking of the comment with a trophy for Cassie and Cici and Friend Award for me? If so…that one it on the Cassie and Cici post.

      Thank you for such a nice comment about this painting, Soma!
      Love and big hugs, xx :-)

  23. What a gorgeous painting Deb..it truely is lovely setting.
    I would love to fly a kite again..haven’t done so in years..would be fun :)

    I am sure weather will warm up soon so you can go swimming.. you really like to swim then?
    How about diving too?
    Hugs Traceyxx

    • I love to swim, but once I begin to think about what’s lurking in the water around me I get out of the water….lol
      No, I’ve never done any diving outside of the standard type dive into a swimming pool.

      It’ll warm up soon enough.

      Thank you, for the visit, my sweet friend. I’ve missed you.
      Love and Hugs, xx

      • what could be lurking in the water.. sharks? omg.. I wouldn’t be in the water the water then lol.. chicken me’hugs Traceyxx

      • Yes sharks, not usually but they do come sometimes. Last summer a 5 year old little girl was attacked by one…scary stuff. Now you know why I get out of the water so quick…almost as fast as I get into it. Lol.
        Hugs, xx

  24. Im glad I enlarged the picture Deb as you get so see so much more detail, what medium did you use on this? or is it a digital ?

    • This one is digitally painted, using acrylic brushes.
      Thanks Sue!
      Hugs, xx

      • :-) Im way behind the digital scene and until your posts Deb I had never seen only the primitive kind on the pc which is basic airbrushing etc… Some of your creations are stunning to say the least.. So thank you.. xxx

        • Before I started doing these I never used anything but the paint program that comes with a pc…and it’s not that good…to me anyway.
          Thank you, Sue…that was a very thoughtful thing to tell me.
          Hugs, xx

  25. The grey tones really give it a cold wintery feel

  26. This is beautiful, Deb, as it depicts precious moments between parent and child. I love it and the color contrasts are gorgeous! xo

  27. Lovely painting Aunty Deb :)

    I bet I am light enough to ride that kite.

    • Hi my little Papoe!
      Yes, you are light enough to ride that kite, but I would never let you up one….you could fall off. Or the string could break and the kite would fly away. Or the wind could shift or stop blowing and the kite would crash. Nope, no kite riding for little Papoe….Aunty Deb loves you too much!
      Love and Hugs little sweetie! xx

      • But…but…it looks fun and adventurous!! I am an adventurous boy :)

        • I’m sorry Papoe. You are not allow to fly on the kite. You can help fly it, but not ride on it. Ask your mommy if she would let you ride on one of here kites….bet she says, “no honey.”
          Love and Hugs, xx

      • Yup!!! MOST definitely NOT allowed. Thank you for talking sense to him Deb ((hug))
