Acrylic on Board 16cm x 16cm
My mum found these in a drawer some time back, and I'm as sure as I can be that they were from my own childhood. If not, I had some very much like them. They certainly channel magical memories of when shiny things were treasured. In the 60s and 70s we didn't have as much access to pretty geegaws like kids do nowadays. They may, however, be some that my daughters had when they were little in the early 2000s - but I don't think so. I wish I knew for sure, as surprisingly, I find it makes a difference as to how I feel about them.
I didn't start my painting until 5pm as I spent some time at the beach this morning and then had a friend over for a spur of the moment lunch. Then the heat got to me and I was too lethargic to paint until later. Now it is 7.30pm and I have yet to cook tea (dinner). Eeeek!
Some photos I took today on my iPhone.
It was lovely and calm so it was easy to keep my sunnies on while in the water.
