This painting is a 12" x 24" on gallery wrapped canvas. The depth is 1 1/2 " and all sides are painted so the painting does not require a frame. These little guys were created from photograph taken by DJHays. She is a wonderful photographer and artist too. I am one my way to the beach with some old friends of 25+ years. I can see us sitting around, talking and catching up as these friends are doing. If you like this painting and would like to purchase it is available through my gallery at DPW
My friends Cathi and Bill took me on an adventure in Oregon..actually we were working but it was the greatest trip for a Southern girl to travel through a winter wonderland of snow. I felt like we were driving through a Christmas card. Along the way we saw many old barns with beautiful snow covered mountains in the background. Wanted to capture this for Cathi.
My young friend has two beautiful daughters and I am so honored to paint Olivia here. I actually painted a watercolor of this exact photo several years ago and now have put it to oil. What captivating eyes she has and her smile makes me smile.
I think it keeps up centered to watch small children play - as adults we forget how to find fun in the simple things. These beautiful girls are the grandchildren of one of my friends who lives near the ocean. She once told me that her family takes every opportunity to create fun memories near the water.
