I thought this piece might be appropriate to post with the upcoming holiday weekend. I know many families spend Memorial Day weekend at the beach or at the pool. With this painting I sought to capture a sense of recreation and relaxation that comes with a vacation to the beach -- a red bicycle and a yellow surfboard parked in the shade during the heat of a summer day at the beach.
This was definitely a fun one to paint.
It was one of the pieces that sold during the May art show "Pathways" with Carter Stuart at For Art's Sake Gallery. The paintings will be on display through the first Monday in June.
