Sea of Love 1

The subjects of this composition provided Mingari with photos of their vacations as inspiration for a painting on canvas.  The result was this happy remembrance of a cruise that typified their travels and life together.  A private moment is captured in which the two gaze out upon the water with wonder and anticipation of the future, perhaps some reflection of the past, and surely relaxation of the moment.

I snapped a photo of a hazy, lazy sunset of the Shenandoah Valley during a visit there.  It never bothered me if other people were in the picture, and in this case, they actually "made" the composition.  I admire anyone else who takes a moment in their daily life to see and appreciate the beauty that is so often around us and yet so often overlooked by others.  So how could I resist painting this scene.  (1999.
