Farewell to Summer

I know the heat and humidity aren't gone for good, but darn if it didn't feel like fall is on its way today. It was the first full day of school for my kids and it was cloudy with a nice cool breeze. We enjoyed the weather by biking to school. Fall is my favorite time of year and I can't wait to switch to a fall palette and colorful autumn scenes, so I thought I would say goodbye to summer with one last beach scene.

I really like that this painting has a sense of place. The white fence turned out really well, it is hard to do white. Your "shadow" areas have to be spot on or else the whole thing won't work. Is this someplace nearby that you can get to easily to paint again? I think it would be cool to see a painting of the same place at different times of day in different seasons. Carolina
