"Where's Your Other Flip Flop?" Oil 6x6
I'm trying to submit paintings to the many Juried Shows that crop up this time of year, and it's keeping me very busy. But with beach season in mind, and an upcoming show (July, Marshfield... details to follow) with a theme of 'Beachscapes', I set up this little still life to paint yesterday. In my mind I was reliving our trips to the sand and sea, with the problem upon arriving home, of the missing flip flop. I really don't like the all-blue (and being literal, there was only ONE pail in the 3 stores I went to and it was the same color as the little flip flops), but hey, it is what is is.... don't you just hate that phrase? Anyway, wish me luck with my submissions to the juried shows and the art association I'm trying for....
