Worth a Thousand Words: Running Along the Beach

Running along the beach, Joaquín Sorolla, 1908
Via WikiPaintings
I may have mentioned before that Joaquin Sorolla is one of my very favorite artists. Like many, I love his seaside paintings for their light and airiness that makes you feel as if you are there.

For my birthday Tom got me the Sorolla and America book from the exhibit which we saw when it was in Dallas earlier this year. It is in San Diego now and I urge you to visit if you are anywhere nearby. It is nice to be able to enjoy this art thanks to the internet. It is nothing like seeing the real thing in person however.
