First Friday Art Trail by Leada Wood, Texas Artist

Original Art by Leada Wood©2017

It's that time again! Don't the months seem to zip by  faster and faster? Whoever said time flies was spot on.
February is the month of love and what better way to say "I love you" than  a romantic evening in the art district in Lubbock, Texas. First Friday will be happening February 3rd from 5pm until 10pm. I will be selling my original art at the Louise Underwood Center For The Arts, if you are in the area please stop by and say hi.

"Beach Boyz", Watercolor, Figure Painting by Leada Wood, Texas Artist

Our sweet family loves to go to the beach...maybe because we live in dry west Texas and the water beckons to us like sirens of old. You know sirens, the sea nymphs...part woman and part bird who lured mariners by their seductive singing. They were also quite beautiful. Getting a little off track here but the beach does call our name and we do make several trecks  a year to enjoy the sea.

Maybe that is why I enjoy painting the kids doing beach things so I can flash back in my mind to the days we were there and having great fun. Life is slower and a little sweeter there and we play more. Nothing like fun in the sun on any beach.

I have painted this scene twice before but still I am trying to capture the essence of the scene. I think I am getting closer! I loved the light in the photograph and the closeness of the boys sharing an experience they both enjoyed. 
Thanks for stopping by!
