"Aqua Broads"

12 x 9"
oil on masonite

A few summers back, I stepped into the shaded Telfair Square, one of the small city parks in Savannah. It was around 90 degrees at lunchtime, actually the more comfortable time of the day - and people were spilling out of their offices while a rather large group of senior ladies, all dressed in aquas, had set up their lawn chairs to listen to a little jazz ensemble. When I came on the scene, the sidewalk was lined with them and passerbys, enjoy the 'In Crowd', one of my favorite tunes.

They're priceless! You zero in on the essence of our shared humanity so adeptly, and with such great heart.

Hi Karin,

This is a great painting. It just says so much. Funny, bold and honest.

I just love this--it has so much to say, evoking one of those moments in time that that are so much more than they appear.

This painting makes me laugh. I love the facial expressions, I love the title, I love everything about it.

Hi! Has this one sold? I absolutely love it! I love the orthopedic shoes and the folding lawn chairs, and the way the light hits the women. Just gorgeous and funny and poignant.
