Fearless Frolic

Last summer my granddaughters had a great time playing on the beach. The two-year-old showed no fear of the waves. She ran and splashed with abandon, in spite of the fact that both her parents and various other relatives hovered nearby trying to keep her safe.

Grandma Peg was busy with the camera. I specifically took some shots that didn't show her face. I'm not a portrait artist, but I really wanted to capture the moment. I hope this little painting will remind us of the fun we had!
