French Memories, oil painting canvas, colorful figurative art, woman at beach, semi-nude female figure Riviera
Oil on canvas, 20" x 20"
SOLD to a collector in Texas
The original version of this scene struck me as too staid so I decided to create a more colorful, playful version. This is the other girl's younger, more spirited sister who just had to see the South of France for herself.

I Am Here
Oil on canvas, 24 x 24 in.
SOLD to a collector in Maryland
I liked the pose of this figure and eventually arrived at the idea of painting a stormy sky and ocean behind her. It's something I'd do if standing at the edge of the sea on a windy day. It's exhilarating to feel the force of the wind on one's body, so long as there's a sense of safety. Woman, wind and water.
