First Beach Walk - mom & child by the ocean

First Beach Walk                oil                 8" x 8"
I've been enjoying painting figures lately, and this takes me back to Hawaii where I saw these two. I wasn't as young as this little one when I first saw the ocean, but the feeling and smell of the salty water and air is not to be forgotten. Hope I captured a bit of it here.

Also, I've listed a few works for auction at my Daily Paintworks gallery- check them out HERE
