Original artwork description:

Sink or Swim is part of a series depicting vacations and leisure lifestyle.. I use subdued colors and loose brush strokes, as in most of my paintings, in order to create the mood and feel of spontaneity. Art buyers may see a symbolic reference to prominent 20th century American painters like George Bellows, John Sloan, Isabell Bishop, and Edward Hopper. 

12 x 16 original Urban Realism oil painting on panel by Darren Thompson.
