When my friend invited a group of us to go to the sand dunes, I was thinking hiking the dune and some nature trails by Lake Michigan.As she parked the car I saw one large dune and a public beach. She unloaded a blanket, towel and beach chair and headed for the beach. I was not prepared. I was not dressed for the beach. I did not bring a blanket, towel or chair. Luckily I had a hat, sunscreen, sketchbook and camera.It was near the end of summer and I then had shoulder surgery, then it was fall and the holidays, yada yada yada. I have been wanting to paint this beach scene (and others) since last year. Finally! This little girl gets to go swimming!I definitely would frame in a floater frame or edge-to-edge frame so nothing gets covered up.
My name is Andrea Jeris, and you are viewing my original painting, "Want to Swim", done with oils on gessoed hardboard. All materials are archival. This painting is 8x10" and signed on the lower left. The buyer will receive the painting safely packaged and ready to frame or simply display on a small easel.
This painting is dry and ready to ship. Please be reminded that the colors may slightly vary due to a digital camera's results and depending on your monitor. I do retain the reproduction rights to this artwork.
