August 2nd. Prompt word for Drawn to the Valley is Seascape. I loaded up a series of random images that represent seascapes in my image file.
None of them are aspirational. Some, like the one above, are fictional. Some are painted. Humdrum would be the word. Seascapes captured in daily life, none involving exotic locations. All within an hour of home or work. All give me the space to think.
An explanation of August Pandemic Ponderings.
Drake’s Island, Plymouth Sound.
This stretch of water is known as Firestone Bay. In this picture, it is masquerading as a Mediterranean Port. As an artist it eludes me. There are more versions of this on my painter/artist ‘Wall of Shame’ than any other single subject.
The next three are my drone-9 fantasy seascapes. In truth they are the drivers-eye view in a car wash.
The Mewstone,Wembury, a cup of tea.
One of the best places I know to contemplate my life. Many of life’s treasures and tribulations get thinking time here.
A recent painting. Still unsold.
Portwrinkle Beach, Cornwall. I have a friend who creates the most beautiful textile art inspired by this beach. Her amazing talent at harvesting the beauty of this little known beach is inspirational.
The next picture is one that illustrates another friends wisdom. He is a wise and talented photographer. I asked him once which was the camera he would recommend?.
“The one in your hand when the perfect shot appears”
Hannah caught this with her phone, at Widemouth Bay.
Finally another painting. Dungeness.
Seascapes just another excuse to ponder…
