open arms

I know you want to trade places with these girls.  I took this photo a few years ago in Hilton Head.  I was there to take a workshop with Karin Jurick and she sent us out to find some subject matter. It was late evening and there was a warm, buttery light.  Such wonderful memories of that fun week.

My workshop starts tomorrow so I felt the need to brush up on painting children because that is our focus the second day.  There is so much freedom when you are not painting a commission.  I love painting specifically for patrons but I REALLY love being a little able to paint looser,  make mistakes and take chances.  This is painted on a 12 x 12 x 2" canvas.
