Walking on Sunshine

10 x 8 in

"Some days I search and search for the perfect plein air painting spot. One beautiful afternoon I took a walk and suddenly saw my friend, her daughter and her dog in the strong sunlight and knew I had to paint them! I’m reminded of Dorothy’s words to Glinda near the end of The Wizard of Oz: “if I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own backyard...”. Walking on Sunshine reminds me that there’s no place like home." - Barbara Davis
