On the way back from Bishop, CA, We took a detour to Chico, a town where my husband's brother Brent lives. It was about five hour drive though the Sierra Nevada. My husband was nice to stop at the lakeside of Lake Tahoe for my painting break. It was a very clear and calm day, and the reflections on the water was amazing. There was a little girl on the beach with her mother. Her bright pink dress caught my attention. I started painting these figures first while I had a chance, then I painted the surrounding.
