Beach Divas

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!
