Picnics, I LOVE picnics.  Have you ever noticed how great food tastes when you eat outdoors?  It's yummier than ever.

One of the picnic dates I recall with my husband was us quickly purchasing produce, etc from a local grocery store and packing an impromptu lunch before heading up to Pt. Loma very early in the morning to check the tide pools (another huge fav of mine).  

We were ravenous by the time we did eat our little picnic on a bench at the tippy top with seagulls politely flying by and giving us a wonderful aeronautical display.  One of our best days ever!  Am I blessed or what!!!

"Vintage Lawn Chairs" - Sold

Buy it at AndolsekArt on Etsy!

Summertime and the living is easy are the thoughts that seize me when I look at this painting. It whispers 'take a break', 'come sit for awhile'...

Years ago I did a small version of this particular painting and just could not let it go as I love the feelings I get when I look at it. I have it in a coastal gray frame which is perfect for this piece.

So I did something I rarely do, I painted another version of mine on a larger scale. Changed the colors up a bit as well, otherwise very similar. I thoroughly enjoyed painting this for every reason imaginable.
