Cornwall

A glow in the sky

Memory of an evening walk

Across grassy fields

And over stony stiles

Only a few days

By the sea

But I remember

The hues and colours

The sights and river sounds

Blousy hedgerows

Full of blossoms

Fruits and seedheads

Mild and breezy

Candyfloss clouds

Cornwall, County of coastlines

Beautiful beaches

High cliffs and moors

I want to return.

Finished?

Clouds pile up above a dark blue sea and waves rise, ready to crash against a rocky coast. Cliffs covered in boulders and vegetation stand above a small sandy area.

Having to describe what I have painted is hard, I know what I can see but finding a description that adequately explains it is difficult, especially since I’ve added texture and patterns. I’ve entered it for a local open art exhibition. It’s a bit of a risk, but I wanted to try. X

This is a painting on my sisters wall which I did a few years ago. I’ve put it up because I want to go back. But I don’t think I will this year as the summer is rapidly running out. Maybe I can sneak off for a few days but I’ve got lots of things coming up. Is October too late for a summer holiday? We will have to wait and see what the weather is like. I don’t want to be freezing in a caravan in a storm!

The place? Bovisand Bay, in Devon. Acrylic on canvas.
