RIPTIDE


RIPTIDE, 11x14" oil, ©Diane Mannion

Dangerous Riptide

Floridian winter weather can be unpredictable!  Tough to explain to a five year old why she could not go swimming!  Dangerous riptide warnings posted, high winds, rough seas, and darn cold.  This explains her moody, calm before the storm, attitude. 
First stage worked up from a 6x6" study.
One of many middle stages.

Gorgeous painting diane! I love the girl's quietness in front of a very turbulent sea!
