Impressionistic painting; large, quick brushstrokes; wind blows the clothes and hair of three figures on the beach; a mother lifts her baby, another child is crouched, wading in the water; tide comes in; blue blue hues; cool tones contrast with the red bow and orange reflection on the woman's face; clothes from the early Twentieth Century; subject matter and style similar to Mary Cassatt.
