To reinforce the foundation, each post under the deck wears a concrete-filled canvas bag like a big sock. Being exposed to the salt water and sea air for years, the fabric is stained in colors of rust and moss and even cornflower blue. I'm so drawn to these colors and the weathered, sea-blistered look. I snapped some photos as reference for my own painting experiments. Once my mama caught on to what I was doing, she pointed out her favorite weathered bits too. Love that lady.
