Sojourning


Sojourning
20x26 in
Watercolor on Paper

There are fewer things that make me happier than the beach.  If you know me well, you know it's my favorite thing to paint.  When visiting the islands this summer, one of my favorite stops was Grand Turk.  The water was turquoise, the sand was white, and they had the most beautiful palm tree lined shores.  I painted this piece from a reference photo that I took while visiting the island.  I added in the woman in the small beach shack - I pictured her on the island as if it were desolate and she was waiting for her sailor to return from a long trip at sea.  But she can't wait forever!  Hence the title "Sojourning." I hope you like this piece! :)
