I loved it because he had his little hat on, way to big being as it was an adult size but he didn't care and neither did I. It was grandson and the grandchildren can do now wrong in any grandparents eyes. His colorful swim trunks were just him. I remember when we bought the kite, oh he was proud of it and came strutting out of the store with it in hand. I do wish I had it today, I am sure it got thrown away during the past years, to put on the wall with this painting. I wouldn't care if it had an elephant on it at all.
I have made limited editions of it and it was featured on a calendar that Karen Bonaker makes every year and I used it as my favorite painting when she honored me as one of the featured artists on her forum. I got to share with all how warm this painting makes me feel. It is done digitally with pastels as the media, stroke by stroke it was painted and remembering all the little things we use to do together.
So here it is and please enjoy it and the little story that goes with it.
This is just a close up of part of the photograph of how the sand and how all of the sea weed had washed up on the shore. Didn't smell to good either and of course being on the beach the wind was blowing quite well.
There you go, that is what is going on in Annette's world at the moment. Thanks for coming by and looking forward to see you again.
