It's a fun group of women, who cover a wide range of media and styles.  If you live in the Cincinnati Metropolitan Area, come on by.  

My piece is a riff on an photo I took at Lake Huron last summer.  It is a beach on the western side of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.  We've been going to the Pinery Provincial Park every August for over 10 years.  I started going with my family when I was in my early teens.  The two figures in the painting are my boys.  This was the first year my boys each took a friend--but, I left the friends out of the photo.   The painting is a very limited palette of quin burn orange, carbazole violet, and phthalo blue rs (all Daniel Smith).  I didn't want to keep it as gray as the photo--if I ever do it again, I'd spend more time on the figures.
