Day 3 ~ McClures Beach

I have wanted to paint this painting from an old photograph for years…

McClures Beach out on the California coast is known for its turbulent waves. Here is my mom, my younger brother to the right of her, and I am the taller girl to the left of her. I remember going to the beach often…playing in the waves and in the sand, collecting shells…so much fun! 🙂
