Ah! Romance

                                              24"x36"  Oil on stretched linen.

This is a little different from my usual subject matter.   I was actually going to paint a large piece of driftwood that was lying up on the beach when the couple came over the dune.   They seemed to make the scene more interesting than the cliche'd driftwood, so I switched concepts.  Is cliche'd a real word?   Anyway, the original was a smaller painting, and I did this version in the studio later.  It's strange, but now I look at it and the the male looks a lot like my kid brother ,when he was young.  Weird!            Mike
