Love On The Rocks
Sometimes a painting becomes more than just a painting and this one was one such painting. I painted this because I had done one very similar and it had sold on the day I painted it. I thought I would another similar one because I had enjoyed painting it. This time i put the canvas in landscape, the first one had been portrait. I painted it using my fingers more than anything else. I painted in a kind of frenzy of feeling.
The first one had been inspired by a moment in time when I had been running along the coastal path on a rainy day. I saw a couple standing under an umbrella looking out and across the water. It looked so romantic.
This painting I hung in the local inn where I hang some of my work. My friends had a marvellous week of laughter thinking up names for the painting. The names ranged from, "What a fine mess you have got us into now," to, "When is the next bus due."
I was somewhat glad when a couple on holiday from London stopped into the place and took a liking to the painting and purchased it. I hope it brings them as much laughter and joy as it brought to my friends.
