There was a time when I lived on the South Coast of England. Its my favorite place in the whole world. I love the mix of countryside and beaches, the laid back life style and friendly people. Studland beach is a glorious slice of natural coastline in Purbeck featuring a four-mile stretch of golden, sandy beach, with gently shelving bathing waters and views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. Its a wonderful place to explore with sand dunes blooming with heather and rolling hills all around. I have very special memories of happy, sunny days spent with my children and family there. "By the Seaside" is the view from the beach looking out to Harry's Rocks. This is the largest painting I have painted so far and it is a constant reminder of happy days spent at the Seaside.
