Magical Trebarith Strand

Here we are again in Cornwall looking out to the valley and ocean from the beautiful cottage we found to stay in for a while.   Trebarith Strand has a beautiful beach with the best rock pools when the tide goes out.

I have found so much of my inspiration for painting here, whether I am sitting on the blue slate rocks looking out to sea, watching the turquoise waves against the evening sky. Or sitting among the wild flowers on the cliff side or looking deeply into the mysterious rock pools with wavy quarts ribbons making patterns through the granite. To me, this is one of the most perfect places to be.


  1. There is something so good about getting away and having the peace and time to take inspiration. Is this sun I see in Cornwall? I take it the weather has been a bit warmer than further north. Still in the West Country, I am finding summer a little late this year but am off to Cornwall myself soon. Seeing your photographs has made me look forward to it even more.

  2. Wishing you a wonderful time in Cornwall. We have a few sunny days, some foggy, and even got caught in a hale storm walking on the beach! Always beautiful to me though. We may go again in September. Summer starting very soon!

  3. I can see why you find inspiration and joy here, gorgeous and magical! So glad you got to spend time here.
