Tabitha on the Beach 12"x16" Oil on Canvas

This is a painting I did last summer.  It was my first attempt at painting a beach scene, or water.  I started out a bit intimidated, but it all went pretty smoothly, and a lot quicker than I had anticipated.  It was a lot of fun.  This was from a picture of my daughter at the Gulf Coast, near Destin, Florida, taken on the last day of our vacation that year.  She was about 11 at the time.  It hangs in her room for now, and she loves it.  I've thought about giving it a different title, something like 'One Last Look' or 'Until Next Time', since Tab loves the beach so much, and always hates having to leave.
