Lifeguard On Duty

I waited all morning for the lifeguard to show up at this chair. Since he didn't make it until after noon, I painted most of the picture with the chair still empty. Finally, I asked one of the lifegaurds if one of them would be willing to sit in this chair so I could get a photograph. This is Ben, who was more than willing to help out.

I am so glad you got the lifeguard to come strike a pose - honestly he looks like he's been there for hours! :) Fabulous job of keeping him simple. Love the color!

I really like the overall impression of a summer day I get from this painting — and the quality of the brushstrokes. Very pleasing colors, too. Nice job!
