Dreams, shadows and rockpools.

While in Cornwall, we spent alot of our dreamy days on the beach.  Trebarwith Strand is one of my favorites.

The sea was still icy cold from the winter and I could just bring myself to paddle up to my knees in the waves. 

The rockpools were so deep with the most fantastic colours of blues.   My little girl Megan managed to get a wetsuit and imagined herself a seal or mermaid on the rocks then jumping into the pools.

Waterfall and stream running into the waves of the Atlantic.

Waves of the Atlantic Ocean at Sunset.

Dancing waves rolling in.

Running in the pools and watching the sunset as the tide goes out.

Gull Rock in the distance.  I imagine a wonderful place for mermaids to dwell.

This is such a magical place for inspiration and some stories say, a healing place for the heart.

A panel of paintings in the Shire Hall , Bodmin.

A set of burgundy paintings  and panels of paintings that are on show in my solo exhibition.  Shire Hall, Bodmin, Cornwall.    Just a sample of the paintings for this Exhibition.  Starts tomorrow and ends 27th May 2011.
We were hanging the paintings on the last day of our holiday.  Every day was beautifully sunny except this Saturday, which turned cloudy with heavy rain....much needed for my poor garden!

Many of these paintings are inspired from my time in Cornwall....such a magical place.
