Take a day off and go to the beach in front of this double canvas about summer, lots of people, cocktails and sunburns. This diptych features the human form and spirit in its purest form: interaction and connectedness. The summery colors convey a feeling of heat, glistening water and blinding sunshine. Can you find the life guard and the bathing beauty?
I wanted to create a painting about the beach without actually showing the beach just everything else that goes on during a busy day there. This has been on my mind since I came back from Cannes earlier this year where Afraa and I took long walks along the shore without ever actually going into the water.
