|"Sunday afternoon at the tide pool" by Hilary J. England, 24" by 30" oil on canvas|
It's been a while since I've posted, and for that, I'm apologize. I really have suffered over the last weeks with depression, and it's been a hard struggle. I'm starting to come out of it a bit now...
About this painting: This was done from several studies at the shore. I did this in studio, and it was a true battle to get it finished, since I was feeling so poorly, I could barely even pick up my brushes. I couldn't keep focused on the painting, and wound up smoking a cigarette for every 1/2 hour of time put into it...LOL...not a healthy diversion to say the least.
This painting was done from these studies, but also from a very strong image I had in my mind throughout all of this...this middle aged couple, looking so happy and content, enjoying their Sunday, the rest of the world was away from them...I was an interloper, looking into their bliss...feeling happy for them, feeling content for them...wishing to feel their happiness as well...like looking through the picture window of a storefront.
I hope you enjoy it..I do now that it's done.
