"Summer I"

4 x 4"

Working on larger paintings can be daunting sometimes - and frankly, I occasionally need to paint something less detailed, less challenging - something that will take an hour or so. It tends to rev me back up and I can resume what I'm doing with the larger pieces. I like to call them my 'in betweens'. So having summer and the beach on the brain, I started this summer series - small 4-inchers that transport me to another place, if only for a little while. Look for more to come.

The beach is a nice thought, and this makes me think of The Keys.

Beautiful, Karin... Just as light and loose as the mood should be!

Hi Karin,

I just love the way the woman's body
makes the blue into ocean.

Perfect.

Take care,

Barbara
