Warm Waters

Watercolour - size 18½ " x 11½ "

Please bear in mind that once this painting is matted/mounted it will measure considerably more - in the region of 25½" x 18½" with the frame then being added to these dimensions.


This is another painting brought about by an art blog theme. This week's is 'water' and while 'a glass of' water' came to mind immediately, this image was soon overtaken by wonderful memories of a holiday in Florida mixed with the words 'water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink' which I have discovered is a misquote from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge - it should read 'Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink'. While this is not one of my favourite poems, Florida is definitely one of my favourite places - long days of sunshine and lazing on the beach (oh well, yes, theme parks too!)


A watercolour painting of a beautiful beach lapped by a warm sea - crystal clear and inviting.

I look at this painting and am immediately transported back to a wonderful holiday where the days were filled with laughter and sunshine. I hope you will be able to join me at the beach when you look at the painting and feel the sand between your toes........
