Jean Amador has asked me to show my “A Girl Swimming” and “Two Girls Swimming” oil paintings in her exhibit opening March 15th at the High Studio. They’ll look good in there. Come to the opening reception, won’t you?

“A Girl Swimming” (above) shows an Ophelia – like maiden beneath the water, the surface of which is covered by water lilies. I used the water lilies in the pond outside the Santa Barbara Mission as reference material for this painting. 

Two Girls Swimming has a double helix of Jasmine flowers floating in the water as the twin girls swim.
