I finally finished 'Seaside Culture' (previously titled 'Beach Life'). I have done many changes since my first 'work in progress' posting of this piece. Deleted a few figures, as well as deleting the sand castle and buckets in the foreground. I felt, in the end the painting worked better without these items....or maybe it's because it's been sitting in my studio for so long now, I just wanted it finished....sick of looking at it! It was such a large painting with so many figures....I'm looking forward to starting something new...something on a smaller canvas.
Oil on stretched canvas

I'm going to enter this artwork into the Moreton Bay Region Art Awards....'fingers crossed' I get in.
