"Treasure On A Black Sandy Beach" by Carol Thompson

"As you stroll the beach just after a storm it is your fortune to discover a 'treasure on a black sandy beach'."

Artist comment:  "It is a rare occurence, but it can happen. After a storm far out at sea, glass floats can break out of the swirling mid-ocean current that has kept them captive, and they are blown toward shore to land on the soft sand of the Pacific Northwest coast. There are hardy adventurers that keep track of those circumstances and search for them by day and by flashlight at any hour of the night. Sometimes lucky beach walkers have come upon one floating in the surf just offshore. The green glass ones are becoming more and more scarce, as styrofoam plastic has become the norm for fishing net floats. But, I cannot help daydreaming that one day as I walk along the shore, I will spot a genuine glass ball bouncing up and down on an incoming tide. Maybe it will be the size of a baseball, but maybe, just maybe, it will be as big as a basketball with cord still twined around it and I will rescue it and it will be my very own treasure. Meanwhile, I can create with oil on canvas, an imaginary scene of `a treasure on a black sandy beach'."
