Size: 27x41
Medium: Giclee on Paper

Note to self:  "when working in digital format make sure to work in full output size."     I started this painting on paper, from a small sketch, of about only a couple of inches, scanned it into the computer and started working on the picture.  It wasn't until it was finished that I realized I hadn't changed the dimensions. Therefore, I had to redo it in a larger output size.  Otherwise it would have lost its definition when printed.

A Rose by Any Other Name...If I gave this painting a different name, outside the Beach series, would it still be part of the Beach series?  I'm still thinking of the beach while painting them and yet this one and the last remind me of scenes of the heavenlies.  (And I know at least one of you is tired of the Beach.)
