Artist Challenge- R. Kenton Nelson

Inspired by this painting by the artist:

Hopefully the link works properly!

Well, it sort of does- you'll have to scroll down a couple rows, but you'll know which one it is when you see it.
You got the time frame right with this one... that camera takes you to that era nicely. Been considering what I could do for this challenge, its such a 40s ~ 50s era related artist. Reminds me of all the old colouring books I used to colour in. I need a diving board :)

@sugarmuser Thank you Sharon! I've been wracking my brain for ideas. I have vintage items but most are not easy to get to and I'm slightly challenged with arthritic knees right now. So I kept thinking, "What's easy to get to?" And then I saw his camera picture and "ding, ding, ding!" there was the shot!

@olivetreeann I can relate to Arthritic pain.. I have had rheumatoid arthritis since my mid thirties, part of an auto immune disease. BUT I am doing well right now. I hope it eases for you.

Nice dark shadows and bright light the artist's. A good image for the challenge.

Totally nailed it. I would like to try but may not get around to it, besides how can I compete with this?! ;~}
