I evidently like the challenge of doing an impressionistic painting of someone and actually having folks recognize the subject. This particular painting captures memories of a wonderful family beach vacation we had this past summer. It was a gray day, with just enough sun light to bounce off the clothes and cast a bit of a shadow. I ended up doing two paintings (8"x10" and 16"x20") of this scene -Christmas gifts for Gail and Tracy.
Enjoying life with people you love, does it get much better than that?
