More Work in Progress on the Skelly Couple on the Beach

Getting closer. I’ve already put my signature “M” on this one, but I will probably continue to tweak it a little during the day. I’m leaving it on my easel so I can let it bug me when I go by. I can already see little things that I will want to fix before I let it go out into the world.

Finishing up the water, added pink to the sky and the sand.

Work in progress, skeleton couple dancing on the beach

More progress on the couple dancing on the beach. I got to thinking about all the fun I have had in my life while I lived near the water. I still live pretty close here. I mean, 30 minutes isn’t bad at all, but I still wish I lived closer. When I was a kid, Lake Michigan was 5 minutes away by car and Hutchin’s Lake was a quarter mile down the road from our house. In Ludington, I lived 11 blocks from the beach and I used to walk my dog down there every single morning. I’ll get back to the water again, see if I don’t.

Skelly couple dancing on the beach, work in progress

That’s probably not the final name for this one, but it’s coming along and I thought I’d share the first few steps in this painting. A skeleton couple dancing together makes perfect sense to me. Double the pleasure, double the fun!
