The Gathering together of friends and family is always a special time because it can be such fun to catch up on the news and find out what has been happening.  These occasions build our memories and form our relationships.  If like me you don’t live close to where you grew up or your family, these times are made even more special when we come together for celebrations and holidays.


In this series of When Summer Comes, I have explored the gestures and stances of people.  There is not much detail in the actual people of these paintings and it’s not necessary because you can read them from their body language, their shapes, the angle of the head.  Enjoy these people shapes, because they are all of us.
