One of my favorite subjects to paint is people on the beach. I captured these two young girls playing in the surf in Santa Cruz, CA. I am attracted to the colors the light at the ocean emits...the warm tones of the bodies against the cools of the sea. But it is through the brushstrokes that I try to capture the freedom of spirit of the girls.
This painting was accepted into the National Juried Show of the American Impressionist Society for 2010. It was my first attempt to get in and I was both surprised and very excited to be accepted!
