|About two years ago, I decided to attempt a model in the landscape.
My model loved the water splashing around her, but thank heaven for the small white umbrella to protect her from the sun. The canvas is Belgian linen, which gives real beauty to the scumbles.
The painting was done from life in two sessions, which makes it one of the most impressionistic pictures I ever did, and as a fossil of the experience, one of the most potent.
