This painting is a commissioned piece for a very old friend of mine from back in the days when we lived in Saudi Arabia… Yes, we did. In a town called Ras Tanura on the Persian Gulf. I’m sure everyone who has ever lived there remembers the beautiful turquoise waters and the white sand beach…
8″ x 8″ oil on linen
She wanted a painting of her and her 4 sisters and her mom on the beach. I pulled this painting together from several different photographs. The girls on the beach building the sand castle were actually in a photo decorating a Christmas tree. I had to come up with something for the mom and the littlest sister. The beach scene is from an actual photo of Ras Tanura beach.
Sure brings back a lot of memories…
