Beach Life by Julie Riker
There are few things I like better than a day at the beach...painting is one of them. So set me up with my paint supplies under a beach umbrella and I am as happy as a clam.
This is one of the paintings I did while I was in Chincoteague a few weeks ago for their plein air festival. I was noticing all the colorful beach umbrellas and how quickly the color faded out of them as they receded into the hazy distance where sky, sand, and sea almost became white.
This piece did not sell at the sale on Chincoteague, so I brought it home with me where I was pleased when it sold very quickly to a local buyer.
