oil on stretched canvas
I painted this beach scene that was fashioned after a similar painting by deceased Dallas artist Helen Cuthbertson. I know very little about Helen or her work except that my daughter in law and her twin sister collect her paintings. I was fortunate to find this one at an estate sale and was thrilled to have found it a few weeks before my daughter in law's birthday which was today. Ever gotten a gift for someone else and really wanted to keep it for yourself? Well, that happened to me with this painting, but did the right thing and gave it away, but not before painting a smaller version for myself. The framed original was painted on a 16 x 20 canvas. Now we'll both be happy with our new works of art!
