8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord
I spent my entire childhood and teen years doing exactly this. The more burned I got, the better. My goal was to get a tan. Never happened! Blue eyes, blond hair...No tan...When I moved to NYC, I even got one of those tin foiled folding things and would go to Bryant Park at lunch time to get a few rays. I didn't look too odd because there were a lot of other young women like me, in suits, heels, stocking, etc,.doing the same thing. Men were smarter. You would never see a man in a suit and tie sunbathing. Anyway, the two women here were in conversation, spending a beautiful day at the beach. Fun to paint!
