What's that, Mom? Rookiepainter Entry

What's That Mom? 

The Rookiepainter challenge this month is a very nice beach scene with people walking by the shore.  Jen explains that this month's challenge is her ode to Karin Jurick from Differentstrokesfrom differentfolks art challenge. That was my first foray into art challenges and I miss it!  

So, this is my interpretation of the photo Jen has provided. I'm a sucker for beach scenes, as you know. If I could, I would live right on the beach!  I do have a hard time with figurative painting though, but this one was fun to do and I thought it would be cute and a bit more interesting if the young boy spotted a lobster-like creature in the sand! 

Here is the reference photo for the rookiepainter:

I think you did a very good job of this. I "like" it. Of course, I also have always been drawn to beach scenes. Keep up the great work!
