In all this damn sand! Just having a little after-Christmas fun. I did lose my marbles before Christmas, however. Oil, and lots of AB & knife work. One layer, no effects.

Umm lost your marbles? I think you are doing just fine as this painting shows! All that sand makes it warm I am sure.:D

Fantastic! ... so realistic.

A bit too soggy to walk on our beaches, so thank you for this nice warm, dry image!

Beautifully rendered beachscape, Skylar! And the addition of the large marble is perfect.

Null - Thanks! Yeah, I have a somewhat hokey, cutesy factor that crops up now & then.
Jas - Thank you. It's nice to turn awayfrom snow, and toward sand.
Scratch - Thanks! Realism is important when portraying certain subjectmatter.
MacPix - My Pleasure!
Sandy - Yeah, and I don't find 'em until way into the new year, either!
Caesar - Thanks so much. I pay great attention to shadows. They "ground" everything.
Scott- Thanks! That Marble is the essence of the piece.

L Skylar Brown,
Someone once gave me a beautiful blue marble then the little brat
took it back but I am happy to see that you have again found yours.
A lovely yet contemplative and touching piece ... impressive art work
by the way! :)

Mairz - Thanks so much for your comments. It's funny, the older I get, the more images from my childhood seem to pop up. Hope it isn't anything serious! Of course, if I did go senile, I doubt if anyone could tell the difference!

beautiful piece Skylar, with a touch of the surreal thrown in for good measure... always nice. :) glad we made it through the holidays.
