Boy with the red ball

5x5

This boy is full of energy (wish I had some)! The ball was originally blue but I wanted a contrast so I painted it red. Notice how the sun is hitting his chest. I'm very close to finishing my 24x36 ballerina--Heather, I just need to get a decent picture then I'll post it.

Another lovely painting. I love all the colors -- the shades of blue and the red of the ball.

Love the blues in this picture and you're right, the red ball just makes it pop! Another beautiful at the beach painting Rhonda! (can’t you tell the beach is one of my most favorite places to be?) :D

Hi Paz,

The blue does look very intense in the picture, it's probably more like the other two posted by I was too tired to fix it (ha). I'm getting lazy in my old age.

Hi Sandra,

The beach is definately one of my favorite places to be. My friend Sandy called the other day to tell me she had been to the beach and I was very jealous!
Thanks,
Rhonda
