December 21 - Beach Scene, The Rock Pickers
I have always wanted to paint this painting--I had done a larger version years ago when I had returned from Baja California, in acrylics. These two ham radio operators, him single, she in a bad marriage, came together first as friends, and then later on, were married when she was free to do so. They developed their friendship on this crazy trip South of the Border where we camped on the ocean in my camper.
How fun it has been today to bring this memory alive in oils. A quick painting, I started it around 8 pm, and wrapped it up by 9:30 or so.
