I try to wherever possible, use my own images for painting. But sometimes you see a photograph that is just so inspiring you just have to paint it. This was one of those photos.

I owe the composition of this with my special thanks to Crissy Watkins (www.dolcevita-images.com) for allowing me to use her wonderful photograph as a reference.
