Girl at the Beach

oil on canvas 6x8

We advance on our journey only when we face our goal, when we are confident and believe we are going to win out.......Orison Swett Marden

This is an interpretation of a  beautiful young lady on the beach in Florida. Another small painting, a 6x8 completed with a #6 round brush ... continuing my learning session. Tho they may be a little rough I feel I am getting there and the paintings are coming out with reasonable success.

Inspiration is very subjective. For one person inspiration may be one thing but for someone else it may come from a totally different direction. For a painter it may be a face... it may be a particular scene... or it may be a still life set up with lighting from a particular direction. No matter what the inspiration ... no matter where it comes from reflect on it while it is there. Be moved when inspiration affects you. Be inspired in life.
