Ocean Beach

6x8" oil on masonite
OK, not your typical 'daily painting' and I know its breaking all sorts of 'rules' WE painters put on ourselves...like: painting from photos, using black, and centering the subject etc. But I couldnt help it and I'm pretty sure the girl with the pipe appreciates a little rule breaking.
Years ago there was an artist who showed paintings like this on Nantucket except they were huge. I loved them. For me, a series of these has always been brewing. Combining so many things I love: painting, people watching, history, old photos, family and the beach. The handsome sailor is my husbands grandfather in 1923.
