I was asked by a friend if I would donate a painting for the upcoming Rose Bowl Aquatics Water Polo fundraiser and auction. Although I am not involved with the organization, my boys do play water polo and I am a huge fan of the sport. Of course it would have been easy to just donate one of my "boat paintings" but I thought I should try to paint something that might be more appropriate for water polo families. So as I was sitting at my boys water polo game yesterday afternoon I decided I needed to come up with something fun.
This was a quick one ... because I am TOO BUSY WITH COMMISSIONS ... but I really had fun painting it. Originally I painted the hand in the shadow but it was way too dark. So I redid it this morning. And I had no idea that hands were so hard to paint! Yikes!
