This is a detail of one of the four commissioned paintings on Cornwall. This is Penzance including the Jubilee pool (an art deco masterpiece). I am still working on them even though I was hoping to have them finished last week. I can't show it all as I know the couple read this blog so just a sneaky peak I'm afraid.
I got shampoo in my eye today in the shower after swimming. I haven't done that since I was a kid. I know now why I used to scream! xx

Crikey! That brings back memories. I did one of my degree design projects based on the Jubilee Pool! I love the colours you've used in your painting. That beautiful turquoise colour is so evocative. The seagull is very cute! I bet they'll love it!

Oh thank you Lesley. I hope they do! I had real fun looking through photographs of the Jubilee pool that led me on to a real fascination with lido's in general. I used to live near a really amazing one in Saltdean near Brighton. I truly love 1930's architecture!
