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.
