acrylic on hardboard
This is a painting of a relative. She and my daughter played in the lake for hours. This is long after all the dads, aunts, uncles, and grandparents had done their time watching them swim. This was finally that evening when they were both left with me (the only non swimmer of all of the adults) to watch. This is why the scene is painted at the water's edge playing with miscellaneous toys and clam shells. Still in the water. The evening gave me some great lighting so I'm not complaining.
