This little painting is from a sketch I did long ago on a trip to the ocean. The model is one of my daughters. I was interested in thick, juicy paint and loose brush strokes. A joy to paint. The sketch is below.

Both the painting and the sketches have a great sense of freedom. Thanks for the comment on my latest post - been so busy I've not even looked at my own site let alone anyone else's. Your comment reengaged me. Look forward to more of your posts - I like it when they enlarge so i can see the strokes close up.

Thanks, Ken. Your window sill in "A Brushy Interlude" is so full of joyous energy. It reminds me why I used to use my watercolors. For now, I am still captivated with the thick, buttery quality of my oils.
