PoolLadies

My father kept meticulous photo books through out his life. They document his growing up in Charleston, family gatherings, parties, cousins, friends, travels & more parties. Many of my favorites are from the 1940's up to the early 50's.

One picture in particular from 1951, shows a group of ladies (my grandmother's friends) in a swimming pool having a grand time. It so captivated me that I had to paint it. I put my own modern "spin" on it though. Not only did the original painting sell, but it became a top selling national greeting card, fine art print and a needle point canvas for a design company.
