#197: "Richardson beach"

SOLD - $70. 8x8". Oil on paper
Sometimes artists take candid photos on beaches that they later use as reference for paintings. I try not to do that because personally I'm uncomfortable when photographed without consent let alone in swim wear. 

I asked her permission and she consented. She was reading a magazine, had a pretty yellow two-piece on that had red roses on it and her name was Rose. How appropriate! Everything around her with her in it looked like a timeless painting - I couldn't resist not painting it.
