Ready for Adventure, pending sale
Ocean Wash and Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 28" x 22" in white frame. “Ready for Adventure” was inspired by what I remember as being the ultimate summer experience as a child. To be near the water, especially the ocean, was where some of my best childhood memories were made. I have few photos of my childhood, which is another story, but here is a photo of me with my grandmother next to a pool. My grandmother is one of my influences in life. She was one of the strongest women I have ever met. She taught me to live life to the fullest. She made sure I was exposed to travel, the arts and any opportunities for growth. To me, she was joy and love personified. So, this painting was my attempt to express joy from my childhood’s perspective.
