"Bucket Head"

"Bucket Head" is another watercolor painting that was meant to be an oil. When I became adept at oil painting with the newly developed oil painting technology, I was able to paint this painting in oils, as I had originally intended. No longer allergic to the paint and painting medium, I was now free to paint in oils. The child was photographed in her backyard wearing a blue bucket as a hat. She was pretending she was at the beach. Lo and behold, through the magic of painting, she was transported to her favorite beach! "Bucket Head" is an oil on canvas painted in 2007. It is 50" x 38," the same size as the original watercolor.
