I think the body language for these two say it all. Vacation at the beach. This is why I paint. Happy happy joy joy! :) 

Spring Break

I know this composition has been done before. But this is a pretty common site on the beach. I took this photo when I was at Pensacola Beach during Spring Break. It was a busy place!

I'm finally finding some time to take photos of some of the pieces I have just finished. Here is the first one

Country Girl

10" x 10" oil on cradled board

I just got back from a family vacation up in the Hayward WI area. It was wonderful! Lots of chasing grandsons and boat rides. We all had a great time I think. But I've been hard at work since I got back trying to finish up this one. I thought I had it, but now that I see it on the computer I'm starting to think her hair might need a few tweaks. Maybe I'll live with it for a day and see how I feel later. 

I had a great time up in WI, but I'm glad to be back in my studio. I started another beach scene today. I'll be out of the studio for a couple days so it might be Friday before I can finish it up.
