Beach Buddies by Karen Knuff
There are two things that I cannot live without: the ocean and dogs.
Take a deep breath, and inhale the ocean. I feel so much better already! I feel calm, peaceful, relaxed and happy. I just want to sit on a beach and forget about absolutely everything for awhile! When I see and hear the ocean, I know that I’m “in the right place!”
I don’t think that I could ever live without a dog in my life! I need a dog, and they need me. We are both faithful and devoted to one another. Dogs are fun! It’s a happy day when I get to see dogs playing together, off leash, on a beach! They zoom around, chasing one another kicking up sand and flying through the water! They love being buddies and I love watching them, because it brings me joy…and its fun!

I discovered that when I’m painting, I no longer feel depressed. I’ve struggled with depression for years. This definitely was the miracle that I desperately needed in my life! When I paint, my depression simply evaporates into thin air for that day.
Where did my creative talent come from? I know that this is God’s gift to me, and what a gift!
I have an art studio in my home in Maple Ridge, BC where I live, and where I paint my pictures.
My father, my aunt, and my grandmother were all artists.
