Seaside Story

Seaside Story — original oil on canvas — gallery wrapped — 36 x 30 — sold — by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art.

Someone referred to this painting recently as "Madonna and Toddler with a Book," which caused me to smile. I don't speak Latin, but I often wonder what descriptions such as this would sound like in that language — it always comes across as so erudite in medical terminology or classification nomenclature.

I like this painting. I like the feeling of the two figures, so close to one another, so wrapped up in one another and in the moment. They are literally leaning into one another, physically and emotionally absorbed.
