This painting was a labor of love. It had a mind of its own re what it wanted to look like, very stubborn, required a lot of repainting, however original three goals for it were accomplished: bright colors, whimsy, & community. Favorite detail: serene, blue, abstract ocean juxtaposed with busy, colorful, representational beach figures & accessories.
New painting underway, consisting of three canvases, a triptych.
My focus for this one:
To emphasize the joined expanse of gorgeous blue sky and ocean as well as the myriad of bright colors that sunbathers bring to the beach, plus lots of whimsy!
Pieces of white paper contain pencil drawings of ideas I am considering.
