Swimming Pool

It is the swimming season now in Australia. The local public pool has opened and looks blue and inviting. It will be great to swim some laps there, then back-float and look up at the sky.

I painted this public pool (shown below) during winter when it was cold, still and quiet. The pool is in East Maitland, New South Wales and the painting is entitled "Swimming Pool".

PS. I have been designing bookplates for people recently, showing funny views of their interests and personalities. More about that soon.....


  1. Thanks very much It was very complex painting to do, but a fun challenge!

  2. Miss Perks, your lovely painting inspired me to break into that very pool last night so I could paddle around in the light of the moon.
