A Painting for Today



"Coney Island Beach Waders"
12" x 16"
oil on studio canvas
I haven't painted my granddaughter yet.  She is 28 months old and lives far, far away in Brooklyn, N.Y.  This is her and my son-in-law in the ocean during a summer visit to Coney Island.  Appropriate to look at - as well as paint, since we are destined to have more snow tonight.

You captured the tenderness of a moment in time to be treasured for ever. Is it just my computer or is this painting really this dark?

Ha, glad you mentioned that, I took the original photo last evening after sunset...the lighting was horrible. Took it again this morning and replaced it. Should look better now. Let me know if it doesn't.

Thanks Akiko! I am glad I got to it, it has been sitting on my drafting table for some time - staring at me. :-)
