"South Shore Day"
Oil on Canvas 46" x 46"

"There are several beaches near our home. But the largest and most popular is Summerville Beach. I have done a couple of paintings based on Summerville Beach that are a bit more literal than this one. In one painting from July of 2004, I used the running figure with another flying a kite. In this later painting, I changed the running figure a little bit, added a ball and left out the kite flyer. But I must admit that the second figure was in this painting originally. I changed my mind later and painted him out... he's under there somewhere."
