Dunes of Summer, 4x4 Inches, Oil Painting

$65 & $10 S&H


I'm back in the saddle again - took a whole day off from art-related things - and just spent time with my husband and boys (my daughter is with friends on a very nice island...:(), and was chomping at the bit today to paint.  
Do you know Nancy Angelini Crawford?  Very cool artist.  From Alaska.  Last Spring I was in Sedona painting with my buddies Mary Sheehan Winn and Carol Marine, and Nancy came to visit Carol.  After painting, we were sitting in a shaded sort of pavilion and Nancy and I got to talking and it turns out she grew up in the next town over from me, and her best friend and my best friend were sisters!  So we had actually hung out decades ago! 
Anyway when she visits her Mom we have gotten together to paint, twice now.  Today we went to Horseneck Beach in Westport and painted there.  I did two little 4x4 paintings, of which this is one!  Here's a close up of the brushwork - teeny tiny, but I had so much fun doing it!  It's a painting that probably won't need a frame, and will sit happily on a desk, reminding someone that Summer is never that far away... and the beach beckons....
