    Description

    Southwold is our favorite beach in Suffolk, England so far, as my wife is from that region and this is where we go to visit family and vacation at this lovely East Anglian sea-side town. Right before this photo was taken, the sky changed dramatically from sunny to stormy with seagulls circling in an agitated state as we were standing on the pier with camera in hand. This piece is beautifully matted and framed.

    Storm Over Southwold

    Typical English weather with a storm arising to spoil the fun but not the magnitude of this painting, love the beach huts, town and lighthouse in the background, wooden groynes lining the beach, not to mention all the beach activity!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
