By The Pool

This small oil painting By The Pool has contrasting colours of turquoise and ochre in textured gestural marks. A daydream inspired me; I was lying in the garden on a hot day. I could hear birdsong and running water from somewhere in the distance. While I was enjoying where I was, my mind was taking me on a journey to a serene scene with a tranquil hidden pool for swimming and lounging, a spacious place with views through an archway to a turquoise bay.
Through my painting process, I explore the way we embody ourselves in different environments. I am interested in the way our inner experience crosses over with what’s physically there to create our unique perception of reality.
This painting has integral fixings on the back should you wish to hang it unframed.
