En Plein Air: The Long Island Beach (Oil, 9 x 12)

I went to the Rockaway Beach on the Long Island this morning. It was the first time for many years. Of course, it was different from Florida beaches. Honestly, after being so familiar with Florida beaches, I was not too crazy about any other ones. Maybe because of my age. New Yorkers still enjoyed the beaches very much, especially in this weather. I happened to paint a girl from Woodhaven,Queens, named Girlie and her friend. I don't know if I spelled her name right. Right after I set up and got started, they were about to leave. Upon my request, they stayed a little longer and let me finish their images. So the sketch was done pretty quickly.
