Beach Boy is an original oil painting of a happy childhood time. Early childhood is the developmental stage sometimes known as the play age. This stage usually includes the time frame between the ages of two years until around 7 years. This stage is characterized by rapid growth in all areas of development, including physical, language, hand eye coordination and cognition. The brain itself increases 20 % in weight. Large muscles develop first, followed by the fine motor skills of small muscle development and coordination. Play activities that involve picking up objects, drawing, running, hopping, skipping, climbing, throwing, and catching help to develop these muscles. The natural, cyclical, tidal rise and fall of sea levels is generated by the gravity pull of the Moon and the Earth alignment, the Earth�s rotation, the pattern of the deep ocean tides, the shape of the coastlines and the depth of the near shore. Tidal variations include two almost equal high tides and two low tides per day, a semi-diurnal tide; one high and one low tide per day, a diurnal tide; or a mixed tide, in which there are two uneven tides in a day. Surf is the wave action that is occurring in the area between the shoreline and the outer edge of the breaking waves. This is where the word �surfing� came from. Surf can also apply to the waves that are actually breaking in shallow water or on the beach. The beach is the shoreline at the edge of a body of water. The landform of the beach is often composed of loose particles like sand, pebbles, shells and shell fragments, the result of the endless deposit and scouring actions of wave and current.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
