O I do like to be beside the seaside blue
100cm (w) x 120cm (h) acrylics and paper, original painting on canvas
"O I do like to be beside the seaside blue" is another in my Australian lifeguard and nature series. Inspired by the joyful old music hall song of similar name, living by the sea, swimming in it and sailing upon it is a constant reminder of seasons, tides and all the miracles of nature. In this piece I wanted to depict the significant connection between a human being and the natural world of the ocean. I chose to include a few dotted features again in reference and respect to indigenous Australian culture and its spiritual teachings of the importance of "dadirri" or deep listening. Being quiet and still and immersed in nature is good for the soul - something many Westerners have forgotten.
Signed in the lower right corner, the painting is stretched around a timber frame and the outer edges are painted black.
Title, number and signature is hand written on the rear of the canvas by the artist. Ready to hang.
