"Siesta Key Sunday" Painting by Julie Rustad
“Siesta Key Sunday” by Julie Rustad

As I am melting here in Tucson, I am dreaming about the beach. After being pounded by the sun this morning during my 3-set tennis match, I decided to take it easy and paint this afternoon. As soon as my son, Syver, went down for his nap, I found one of the beautiful photos I took from our trip to Florida.

Siesta Key is one of the top beaches in the US and we were lucky enough to go relax there when we visited my Mom. Syver relished every minute playing in the sand and dipping his feet in the cold water. The photo I decided to paint captures the sweet moments between my husband and son at Siesta Key.
