There was a bright morning glow at one of the Fort Lauderdale Beach lifeguard stations as I was looking for a scene to paint. As I walked by I noticed the lifeguard sitting inside with the strong shadows from the lifeguard hut stretching across the sand. The bright kayak sitting on the beach ready for action seemed like a nice accent for the scene. I decided to paint this on a raised panel in oil paint. No frame is needed with this original oil painting, the scene wraps around the 2 inch edge to the wall as you can see in the photo below. Ready to hang on your wall.
