40 Years And Counting, Oil, 24x24

I literally 'stalked' this older couple (they're at LEAST ten years older than me, so, yeah, 'older').. walking behind them taking shots inconspicuously with my camera.  This is a lovely section of the beach I used to go to where the beach curves out to a pennisula.  I loved how sassy she was and of course, his Rhode Island uniform of black high socks and shoes at the beach.... :)

  8. Wow this is so engaging. The beach, the couple. the simple horizon and soft sky. Love it all. Wish I could see it in person!

  9. This made me smile Kelley...the painting and your story. I know so well the "stalking" that goes on to get a good reference photo...I think the CIA wants you!

  10. What a sweet painting! I am sure this couple would love to have your painting! Actually any long time together couple would love this, it's a reminder, "come grow old with me, the best is yet to be".

  12. I love that this is a larger painting showing a sweet couple living large the right way. I love it when men could care less what they look like with their dark socks and shorts, especially on the beach. This tells a great story about people and how they live life, your beautiful painting style is perfect here. I'm thrilled to hear that I am not the only "camera stalker" out there.

  16. Awww, how sweet, Kelley.

    I particularly like their body language. How one is pulling on the other for support.

    Lovely job on this!
