"Summer Pals"

"Summer Pals"
5" x 7"
Watercolor on Arches 140 CP

This little painting is a moment in time several years ago. The middle boy is my son, and the two other boys are our friends' two sons. Our two families were on a great summer vacation together in a rural area near Reliance, Tennessee, close to the Ocoee River. Great memories!

I love to paint people when they are engaged in something: doing a job, enjoying a walk with friends, playing a game of cards, playing a sport. I like to show a snapshot of someone's day. These types of paintings evoke such great memories in most viewers.

"Summer Pals" received an Honorable Mention award at the Watercolor Art Society-Houston July Monthly Exhibit, and will be on display there until August 2. The Watercolor Art Society - Houston is located at 1601 West Alabama in Houston, Texas.
