This was done recently with only the lifeguard, but I decided he looked far too lonely so I added a few people to the scene.  The place is the view from Heisler Park in Laguna Beach.  I was on the path above the beach.  The stairs lead down to the beach from that part of the walk.  I love painting at the beach--it's good for the soul--so calming and the sound of the waves plus the fresh air are a wonderful combination.  I've recently started painting on Ampersand Gessoboard per Carol Marine's suggestion and it is a wonderful surface.  If you are a painter and haven't tried it, I would highly recommend it!

Original Oil: 12 x 12
Available at Art A Fair in Laguna Beach until the end of August.
