Not Just Oil on Canvas

A good friend of mine, the artist Simon Parker gave me one of his paintings of a beautiful beach near our home.  How lucky am I?  Simon’s work is available through Saatchi Art if you fancy a gander 🙂

    Beautiful. Love the colors and the captured spray of the ocean. Musselwick, is that the name of the beach?

      Thank you Elisa, yes Musselwick is the name of the cove and beach, in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales where I live. It’s nice in that painting but it was storm force 12 yesterday! 🙂
