  20. Hi Dean- It could just as well be the North Coast! My grandpa used to rent a cottage in Port Clinton every summer right on Lake Erie (Now it's all Condo's). This reminds me of those particular lazy, hazy days. Nice work! -T

  23. Your color palette and strong "outlines" make me think of Paul Cezanne, both his figure work and still lifes. This is outstanding!

  27. Hi, Tom. Glad to have awakened a few memories or you. There is no higher purpose for a painting.
    Being from Akron, I am no stranger to the North Coast...Lake Erie. As a youth I spent a few summer nights out on the rocks(guess they're called breakwalls)fishing for channel catfish.

  35. I gotta say that slightly curvy diagonal line at the top of her bikini bottom makes the painting.
    Great color and composition throughout. Nice job.
