Leaving Summer 1 - leaving summer behind series - beach scenes

6x6" oil on gessobord
Starting a new series - Leaving Summer Behind - the first few will be small ones - studies really for some larger paintings. What strikes me with this one is that she is walking to the left - which seems like she is coming not going. does that make any sense? think the rest should be walking to the right.....

I guess the left or right dilemma depends on if the stairs are on the north or south side of the beach. In laguna it seems like all our stairs are on the north end, so my first perception was she's just getting to the beach. But her body language is perf. it says the end of the day, end of summer. Anyway Beautiful painting, i really like it.
