The Story Of This Painting.

Nothing says Florida to me like tight bathing suits and the smell of coconut oil in the salty breeze coming off the ocean.

I remember spending the summers of my pre teen youth in Florida on Boca beach with my mother and and the local lifeguard who was also her boyfriend. Though their relationship didn't last, my love of South Florida beaches has stayed with me to this day.

Bogenvilla's have always captured my attention since the first time I noticed them adorning the courtyards and shops on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. They seem a fitting backdrop for my elegant sun worshiper.

This painting is part of my 'Palm Beach Girls' series.
