Dive into Summer - Work in Process

A painting inspired by a vintage postcard and summertime dreams.
I'm dreaming of warm sandy beaches.  I'm dreaming of days by the pool.

I'm dreaming of fun in the afternoon sun, and week after week of no school.

 I'm thinking of swimsuits and sprinklers, imaging lemonade stands.

I'm lost in a daydream of squirt guns and ice-cream and plenty of time on my hands.

 I long to ride skateboards and surfboards.  I want to wear t-shirts and shorts.
I'd go for a hike, or I'd ride on my bike, or play lots of summertime sports.  Ken Nesbitt

Hoping your daydreams come true.
