A hot summer day under the pier in Huntington Beach, CA. I was trying to capture a photo of the beautiful shadows, when this young woman stepped right in front of me. A bit hurried, she grabbed her hat, and then dashed of to her destination. I shot the photo and said to myself, "I can't wait to paint this scene." So, here it is in progress. A bit of tightening up on the figures arms, and the rolled up mat that she is carrying, then into a frame.
