Swim Boys


Here's the second in a series for my son's wonderful swim instructor, Nora Martin. What a challenge! Seven little bodies are very time-consuming to paint. I have to thank Nora for pushing me out of my comfort zone. I kind of felt like I could only paint portraits and it's liberating to learn that it's possible for me to paint all kinds of things.

I love this! And I'll bet Nora does, too. The colors are great and the boys look like they are being boys..all doing something different. It's wonderful!

Wow, Dani! You sure can paint more than portraits. I love this painting, as well as the first one you did for Nora. It was pure landscape and absolutely radiant.
