oil on masonite
I was supposed to be packing. Instead, I came back to the studio to find my camera, turned on Ella Fitzgerald and did a painting. I'm pathetic.
This is most likely my last beach scene for a while - perhaps I'm craving the autumn colors and 60 degrees. Still.... I had to paint these girls. They remind me of those 'awkward years'. This turned out to be one of my all-time personal favorites too - I think it's what oils are meant for - the swushing, the daubs, the color - it's loose and casual and I love that.
I also want to wish you happy trails..... I'm heading out of town for a couple of days, hoping to get some divine inspiration. I'll be back this weekend. Enjoy.
