She closed her eyes - A day at the beach

A day at the beach shown above is one of the paintings that has sold this week. I love the simplicity of it. It reminds me of the 1950's railway posters advertising sea side holidays. They were of course flat block prints but had the same feel about them.  It could be anybodies childhood or motherhood memory. To Quote Chris Rea:

She closed her eyes
And let them fall away

And in her dreams she is standing by an ocean
She is gazing out to sea
She can remember with just a fleeting glimpse
That she was once free
So long ago now, so long it was as if it had never been
Was it a holiday
She thinks it could have been
