Original artwork description:

Darcy recalls vividly from her childhood in Seaham how the coal dust from the local pits - mainly Dawdon Colliery - used to cover the land and coastline. She says, 'coal dust was often inescapable if we went to play on the beaches, the land surrounding the pits or we went for a swim in the Pit Pond. New shoes would be blackened or you just went home feeling dirty with black dust after a day of play. You could be running, rolling or scrambling through grass and you'd see it, or you could be building sandcastles on the beach, and the tide would be washing the dust in. It became part of the very fabric of childhood.'

Materials used:

acrylic paint, gesso, varnish
