This acrylic painting was inspired by a photo I took of these two people (with permission). The girl was collecting shells, lots of shells, and I asked if I could view her bounty.
Her father helped her search, the entire time, with interest and pride. They “oohed” and “ahhed” and scrutinized each treasured shell. She was filled with joy and energy and her father was very encouraging. For myself and many other beach combers, it was a beautiful moment to watch this daddy/daughter duo.
