California Dreamin'


12x12 oil on panel
Available at Gallery laPlace

I did this on Wednesday actually - before my difficulties yesterday. And I am really,
really pleased with it. I am not sure if I have a favorite subject (location, rather, because people are my favorite subjects) but the beach would rank right up at the top. Then probably cafes. At any rate, these two young men were walking back to their cars late afternoon. It being a scene from Rockport beach (Texas gulf coast,) I thought that the title might be what they are thinking. Rockport can offer little excitement for boogie boards or body surfing.

This painting will be available at Gallery laPlace in Georgia in a couple of weeks.
Its framed in an antiqued black with a gold lip. Stay tuned for the opening information.

Hey Robin! Love this! Your work makes me want to squirt out the paint, get out the brushes and canvases, and go to town!

Are you still in NY?

I like this one-it's familiar, I guess. I like to see the Texas coast portrayed. There are some pretty good waves at Freeport, Corpus, and Galveston, at times.

You are the best, but I think I got the best "cheers" work of art with the horse scene.

This reminds me of the hours I spend keeping an eye on my son and his friends skim-boarding on the waters edge. It's all the rage here on Vancouver beaches. Is it happening in the gulf? I've never seen it portrayed in art which is unfortunate because its a water sport where the bodies motion can be seen up close.
Love your style, Robin. Hope to get hold of one someday.
