This lovely young woman is one of my co-workers who graciously agreed to model for me. We chose a day she was available that just happened to be a perfectly beautiful day. I'm so happy with the cooperative sunlight and shadows - just what I was hoping for. And I'm equally grateful that, as much as I tried and nearly succeeded, I didn't fall into this fountain while I was setting up her pose. The title of this painting refers to the subject more than the wonderful sunlight. Emily thank you. You are beautiful inside and out.
I am so happy we're back in the sunny months! As a Hoosier, we have to wait for warmth and good sunshine to find it's way back to Indiana after long, cold winters, but this little scene is from the southeastern coastal area where such gifts are more plentiful. This couple was deep in conversation while taking a late afternoon walk on the beach.
