12x24 acrylic on canvas
This is a painting from 2012. I was at one of my favorite beaches - Flagler Beach. I am not kidding when I say this man was out there surf fishing from sun up until almost sun down. His gal came and went, but he persevered. I really can't say whether he caught a bunch of fish. I was more interested in his tenacity. I snapped a few photos of them, and painted this picture from one of them. I sold this a long time ago, and I remember the woman who bought it loved it because she said it looked like her in a bathing suit, with a little tummy bulge, and of course holding the red solo cup. I've changed styles a lot in the past 5 years, but looking back - I still like this painting.
