Different ocean...Different decade...Same girls...
Thank you, Helen, for agreeing to create a before and after
image of Lily and Annabel at age 4 & 5 and then 14 & 15. They learned to love sandy beaches and blue oceans on east coast vacations in the early years. A recent trip to Kauai as teenagers strengthened their belief that they'll always be beach lovers! Once again, you've created a lasting memory with your artwork! Thanks so much for sharing your time and talents!
Wouldn't it be fun if she asks me to paint it again when they're 24 & 25!
It's interesting that two of the most important mentors in my life have been named Cheri. Cheri W, my art mentor, and Cheri O, my writing/teaching mentor.
Cheri loves the process, so I made a little 45-second video to show how it all came together. Enjoy!
