Google Inspiration

I was googling around looking at paintings of beach scenes 
and came across this gem from a
Los Angeles Modern Auction blog written in 2010. 

"Cagnes" (Three Bathers)

"The composition of three women talking casually at the beach is, 
at first glance, fairly straight forward. 
But the more I look at it, the more interesting it becomes.  
I think there are sly references to the classical, time-honored subjects like 
The Three Graces and Sirens come to mind.  
Also, more recently, the artist is apparently tipping his hat to Wayne Thiebaud 
and/or the early California 50’s and 60’s  work of Diebenkorn."

I have to be careful when I do this. 
Hours can go by without my even noticing!
