Ryan at the Beach
"Come On In, The Water's Great!"
15" X 11" I finished this painting of Ryan yesterday evening. I did it for the summer project for the Watercolor Passion website - the theme for this quarter is "Summer." This summer Rock and I have taken our 2 youngest grandchildren, Rachel and Ryan to the Fox Island beach at Indian Lake on Fridays. We would arrive around 10:00 a.m. and then around noon, Rock would go to McDonald's and pick up lunch for all of us. When he returned we would picnic at one of the picnic tables. Although the beach looks deserted in this painting, there were usually a number of families swimming and the children would make new friends every Friday. It was always easy to pick Ryan out of the crowd because he was instantly recognizable in his bright red life-jacket. Rock and I totally enjoyed our outings with the children.
