This is a quick rendering combining several old black and white family photos. I wanted to do this painting just to relax and have fun. The beloved boat was called the Jolly Ollie, and the marina house in the back ground was Norwood's, run by old Mr Norwood himself. My mother in law who poses here in her stylish hat, had five sons. Somehow according to her that gave her the rights to Diva status. Each summer the five boys could not wait til the week of the fourth of July to go to the lake. Saturday morning she would pack everything all up in the car and as all five boys watched in agony she would then sit down by the door to leisurely repair her manicure and paint her toe nails. This apparently drove the boys and her husband stark raving mad.
