Painting of the Promenade Aberystwyth

The painting above of Aberystwyth was a commission. We know the area of Mid and North wales quite well having lived there a good number of years. We often took the children to Aberystwyth or Borth for the day when I wasn't working. There was an old fashioned toy shop the children loved to go to and if they were good ( a rare occurrence, only joking) they could have one toy, usually a farm animal. We might take them to a cafe for food and they were told you can have one drink but don't rush it because that's all we can afford.

Yes they were happy days. The painting was to commemorate a proposal on the promenade 50 years before, if I remember correctly.
