Bathing Beauty

Here is my painting from my Sunday Sketch, "Bathing Beauty." For this one I used acrylic paints and scrapbook paper for her little bathing suit and umbrella. She is 5"x7" on stretched canvas and is available in my shop. I like this first picture because it looks like the sun is really shining down on her :)

I must say I miss living in California and being able to go to the beach! No beaches for us here in Arizona, but there are a lot of swimming pools! The kitties and I are enjoying having the screen door open today and listening to the birdies. The summers can get pretty rough here in Tucson, epecially for those of us with swamp coolers and poorly insulated apartments, so we're enjoying the weather while its still only in the 90's! No complaints though, the weather is pretty great any other time of year, always sunny.

When it does get boiling hot I will be traveling in my imagination to this pretty little blue beach with a cute swim suit and matching umbrella (and my sunscreen, of course! :) I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday, and I'll see you soon!
