My mother-in-law is a very talented artist and we are lucky to have some of her paintings on our walls. Marie likes to paint 'beach' scenes and on many an occasion we have been dressed up in white, with hats on our heads and gone to our local (stony and grey coarse sand) beach to have lots of photo's taken. Out of this Marie produces paintings of us on golden beaches with the sun pouring down (if only the reality was like that)!
A few years later Marie gave us this painting which was painted from the same set of photos as the painting above. It is of Dillon, Mollie, Eva (my neighbours daughter) and myself.
This painting has recently been finished and is on loan to me as it is for mum. Mum asked Marie to paint a picture with Sam and myself and all her grandchildren. The photos Marie used of myself and the children were about four years old and Sam sent some photos of her over from San Francisco. My favourite bit of this painting is Ben's bum cheeks!
