About this series:
As the years gallop by I find my children have suddenly become adults and I can only see the children they once were, and the times we had as a family, from a distance.
Nothing dreadful has happened along the way. Family and friends are still talking to me and we're in touch often. It's just that the children have grown up and friends have grown older, and I think a lot of my painting harks back to the time when we were a young family and I was so busy I found no time to paint at all. A quick sketch was all that I could manage.
I don't want those times back again.. It was such hard work, so I'm content to see the next generation growing up and to enjoy their company, and of course paint a picture or two.
All these thoughts have inspired a new series of paintings, still featuring the subject that is at the heart of all my painting, the seaside, but the figures of my family and friends have become more in the background, as I strive to capture the feelings of those long lost days.
