Beachy Keen - completed

Here you have the final painting. Even got a few
sailboats out there... It was a tedious matter to
paint the stripes on that umbrella, but also kind of
enjoyable because that is the focal point area.
Let me know what you think. This is Rehobeth
in Delaware, by the way.

It is 20" x 20".
Oil and alkyd.

Beach scene - getting started

I rearranged things in the original photograph I
took some years ago in order to come up with
this composition. It is square...20 x 20. A wrapped
canvas as well. You will find I change this composition
even more before finishing it. It has been fun to
tilt the umbrella stakes this way and that in order
to get the central focus on the group of chairs.

A lady and her jewelry!

Here she is, not quite completed,
but the essentials are in place.
I never saw her face that day but
from the back, she is certainly one
beautiful woman. She stood for just
a moment like this, and I caught the
shot. This is a 12 x 24 painting and
I named it "Dreaming and Desire".
I will post the final painting soon.
