Oil, 24 x 20. Collection of the artist. A student sent me a digital photo of this child, the daughter of a friend, joyfully running through the surf. Children are beautiful. It's a survival quality. Splash was included in the Founders show at the Rose Gallery in Reston in April 2010 where it received Honorable Mention, and was submitted to the "Corcoran/MPA Student Show" at the Ramp Gallery, McLean, running from June 17 to July 31, 2010.
