#120 Little Surfer Girl!

#120 Little Surfer Girl
5" by 7" original oil on panel

Today was a day of angst about beginning to paint and then scraping off my first painting.  Those are the times when I question my saying I would post a painting every day this year!  But the determination kicked in and I found this little girl in a photo reference taken at the beach and I am so glad I did not quit! I made some color changes and simplifications to the scene.  I love her little board and the whole beauty of children at play at the beach.  It brings back such fond memories of all the sights and sounds so unique to a summer trip to the seaside.  I wish I had had a little board like this to ride the waves! :-)
