Robert Leedy and I painted this same scene in January, 2010. See www. robertleedyart. com for his interpretation of the view. He included me at work on this painting + the doggie friend who had adopted us.
[While I was working a young couple came by and parked themselves at the edge of the ocean, just to the left of my chosen field of view; then the man went away somewhere, and his companion removed her bathing suit top to sun au natural. I couldn't resist this serendipitous moment of free nude modeling so I included a very quick sketch of her in the far left margin of the page.]
