How About a Swim?

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.”

How About a Swim?

4″ x 6″ on Watercolor Greeting Card

I painted this little watercolor yesterday for my granddaughter’s birthday card.  It was fun trying to get as much color as I could into it, while staying pretty true to the great reference photo from Li.

I’m ready to take a dip.  Are you coming?  🙂

About Vincent Lombardi

American football coach Vincent Lombardi is famed for turning the Green Bay Packers from a losing team to two-time Super Bowl champions. He was born in 1913 in Brooklyn. He initially wanted to be a priest, but changed his mind after he became the star fullback on his high school team. When he began coaching the Packers, he set up intensive training camps and demanded absolute dedication but promised them the championship. The NFL named him “Man of the Decade” in the 1960’s. He died in 1970.

    I’m drooling over this beautiful watercolor!!!!!

    I have struggled many times to paint a palm tree and this one is perfect. The water, sand and sky all combine to make the most inviting image.

    Get outta the way, I’m going in!
