The Story of a Painting
Memories often come back when you are painting.This painting is about simpler times, the feeling of the sun’s rays after being out on the boat to long. After a long day in the warmth, sometimes the cook was frustrated because you should have been back earlier. They have been waiting to put the steaks on the grill. Back then there weren’t cellphones so no one could call us and say “dinner is ready, get home now”! At the end of the day you had colorful skin…which might start to hurt before you woke up. You hoped it wouldn’t peel. Despite that, it was a great day.
I used color to portray my vibrant memories in this piece.
