The end of the day

I liked her melancholy, maybe she lost her beach ball.

I struggled with this painting for several days because I couldn't get the figure to resolve with the background. Then I glazed the whole piece with a thin quinicidrone gold glaze and that seemed to pull it together and give it that afterglow.

Boardwalks and those old fashioned bathing suits! It doesn't get much better than this for setting a wonderful mood, Paula. This is a beautiful painting!
