Every year my good friend and I go to the beach for a week and I am constantly snapping photos to use later. (My daughter was with me one time and told me my photo shooting was getting out of hand). Anyway, Deb and I saw this cute little girl playing by the water and she had on the cutest red, white and blue swimsuit with stars on the top. I loved the suit and the little girl. I am painting for a show coming up and I certainly wanted to include Ms. Independence Day.
