Artist's description:

A pool scene based on a vintage postcard of a hotel pool in Palm Springs.

I am drawn to photographs of leisure scenes as well as vintage travel and holiday postcards from the 50s and 60s. I use these kinds of references, alongside my own personal bank of images, to make my paintings. I am attracted to the mix of nostalgia and ‘Luxe, Calme et Volupté’ in these depictions of leisure. Here is a place where people are partly naked, relaxed and often unaware of themselves; perhaps more ‘natural’ than in other situations.
