                                                          California Girls

Just returned from the spring Beverly Hills art fair. It was their 50th anniversary show. I decided to create another California themed painting for the show. I was influenced by a recent TV show which was a Grammys tribute to the Beach Boys. The first song was California Girls and there was my painting. I started surfing in the 60's and the Beach Boys were the tunes for the beach. I started with surfing then added other beach sports to the painting. I used my frogs from last year's Saturday in the Park. California Girls sold on the first day of the show to the lady who bought Saturday in the Park. Overall I had a very good show like last year. Am checking out Palm Springs next as California has proved to be good for me.
