Many of my paintings are a celebration of sorts. Picnic at the Beach was a marvelous day with friends on my 50th birthday.
If asked, I share with a buyer what the painting represents- the location, the occasion, the atmosphere, or the subject's life.
Any special occasion is a painting waiting to happen, and what a great way to savor the moment or honor someone special.
In this case the client connected with the image, regardless of its meaning for me, and it resides happily in her home.
