Beach Kids

Beach Kids: 11x14, acrylic on canvas board, 2011


 This painting was extra special for me to create, as it was commissioned by my sister. She is gifting it to the foster mother of my newest nephew, who recently entered our family through the sweet process of adoption. The fact that T. loved and nurtured little S. before we even met him will always make her a special part of our family. She requested a painting of her children on the beach, which always provides such beautiful lighting and contrast for me to work with. I can't wait to see what it looks like hanging in her newly remodeled basement.
