32"x19" Pastel 


I am always with my camera or phone, looking at the world in terms of what I might like to paint. I love reflections, so I tend to go to places where I might see interesting reflections. I took my reference photo at Ferry Beach in Scarborough, Maine. Instead of the reflection, what struck me was how comfortable this woman was in her bikini. Ladies, wear what you want! She is so beautiful, and it is her confidence that makes it so. Let’s raise our daughters to be confident women. - Terri Brooks
