“We Thought We Were Babes” original watercolor by Carolynn Wagler

Painting back story:

“We were in Southern California visiting on vacation. It was very hot, so we wore ball caps to shade our faces and both of us had pony tails that came out of the back of the hat.   My husband took a snap shot with his camera. Later, I thought “we were babes” and I painted it. The art seemed to resonate with viewers because it received three ‘judges’ awards and even spent a couple of weeks for viewing at the Capitol in Salem.”  Carolynn Wagler
