Semana Santa .....on the Beach

It is Semana Santa (Holy week). How fast it has arrived.  This means for many, many Mexicans, camping on the beach. It is the most popular beach holiday of the year.  I took the picture that I used for this painting
on Easter Sunday two years ago.  This family was playing on the beach trying to make each other fall down in the sand.  I was captivated by the girls hair and clothing blowing in the breeze. I loved the playfulness of the scene, the smiles and laughter. With their kind permission, I snapped several  photos.  The painting is acrylic on wrapped canvas. The beach is very much a part of life here.  La Paz is on the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean is less than an hour to the west.
