This painting was inspired by a visit with college friends at our last reunion. It is important to note, that I did not intend to make this a portrait (it does not look like her), I just wanted to capture the energy of the scene.
The back story is that right before our college reunion, the State of NH had held a contest where you took pictures of you (and friends) with this sign while vacationing in NH and posted it on their website to enter to win a prize. We of course we loved that idea and took photos of us with the sign all over campus.
This painting is from a photograph of one of my friends by the bear skin rug in the lobby of the bed and breakfast we stayed in. I have to say that I had allot of fun painting this scene and it still elicits a giggle when I look at it.
Original watercolor 16x20 with mat.
This is a painting of a friend who's always smiling and going a mile a minute. I bet the Waif's song "Gillian" was written about her:-) It's great to have wonderful friends (and beautiful) to inspire my paintings.
16x20 watercolor including mat.
