This was such a fun painting to paint. I had been experimenting with this style for a few months when I came up with this subject. It was during the winter and as usual, I was dreaming of warm tropical beaches. The simplicity of the scene and soft faded colors surrounding the main subject give the painting the illusion of 3D. It hung in my family's Gallery in Lake Tahoe for a short time. A customer became quite taken with it. He stared at it the whole time his wife shopped around. He mentioned it to her but she didn't seem to have the same feeling he did. They left without buying it. A few months later I got a phone call from the gentleman asking if the painting was still there. I said yes. He was very relieved and told me he had been dreaming about it everyday since he saw it and could I please ship it to him. I was more then happy to sell him the painting. I knew it was going to the right person.
The original painting hangs in a private collection in the Bay Area of California.
