Day 21 ~ Wagon Ride

Wagon Ride ©2014 Karin Naylor8″ x  10″ oil on canvas

What fun to ride in a wagon!  The inspiration for this painting came not on a beach, but in the middle of a crosswalk in some far away town in Illinois. We were trying to find a coffee shop to take a break from our long drive, and I spotted this woman with an empty wagon crossing the street.

After we found the coffee shop who did we see there, but this same woman with the three children in the wagon. I just couldn’t resist taking the photos and saving them for some future painting. I changed the street to a walking path on the beach as you can see. We artists get to do things like that. 🙂

I’ll be working on this a bit more tomorrow, but I wanted to get it posted for today. Yesterday’s finished photo is up and can be found on the previous post.

Let me know what you think. I’m getting tired…only one week left to go. Can’t believe how fast the time is going by.

  1. Love this one and the story, Karin. It’s amazing where inspiration sometimes comes. So “only” one more week! I’m tired too, especially if I think my paintings should be getting better and better. I feel just opposite is happening.


    1. I’ve been feeling that way too. Hopefully this will change for us. One thing I need to do is clean my brushes, and get organized…plus my house is looking very uncared for, so maybe I’ll start off tomorrow doing a little cleaning. Oh…but I have to run to Hobby Lobby and get more canvases. Uh…oh…
