Something about a bathing suit brings a smile to my face. It makes me think back to times as a child running through the sprinkler in the back yard, going to swim team practice and hanging at the neighborhood pool all summer. As an adult, it reminds me of the tropical vacations I have taken, summer holidays at my parents condo on the beach in Florida and the relaxing feeling of being close to water.
Dorothy Shain visited New Orleans a few years back and I discovered her amazing bikini paintings and just learned today – she has prints – thanks Instagram! They are retro, playful and full of character – and I think I need three!
