During these hot days of summer I am hibernating inside. It is hard to find subject matter when you want to paint people and not still life's all of the time. I have been scanning Flickr.com for ideas and I have found some wonderful photos. I am always respectful of artists copyrights and I always ask permission to use a photo. Everyone has been so kind and allowed me to do so. This painting is from a wonderful photographer named Fabian Gehweiler www.flickr.com/photos/fabiang please take a look at his photos they are wonderful. I am happy with the way the painting turned out. I tried to create the effect of the white hot summer heat as the ladies were walking on the hot pavement and I think I did a pretty good job. Thanks again Fabian!
