Hammock on the Beach,
Acrylic on textured paper, 15 X 11
I feel like I've really accomplished something! 7 paintings in 7 days. It's so much fun to be painting regularly, it makes me wonder why I haven't kept up with it before. I guess life just gets in the way sometimes, and once I get away from painting every day it's harder to get back to it.
This painting was from a photo I took at a resort in the Florida Keys. I think I've seen this scene pop up more than once. I've eliminated some palms that were in the original picture but left in the little island of mangroves off shore. It was certainly an inviting and idyllic spot, probably photographed hundreds of times. But each artist has their own interpretation and style of painting it. No two are alike.
- I am a child of God and I believe that Jesus Christ is His Son. My purpose in life is to love Him and others. How He works this out in my life is a personal and individual thing with which I do my best to cooperate. He works through my relationships and my art and His working in my life brings me great joy and peace which I hope to pass on to those around me.
