Wish You Were Here

Wish you were here, a seaside postcard painting with a dog
A little tease on the theme of the traditional seaside postcard.

The beach huts are from a photo by Christine Coffey, the seaside is imaginary although based on the red cliffs of Sidmouth, Devon where I used to go on holiday with the children when they were small.
Today's painting is dedicated to all those who, like me, get fed-up of the press telling us what to pack "for our holidays" when we are not going away on holiday. 
This is in many ways the best sort of holiday, in fact: imaginary. No packing involved, no travel delays or traumas, no sand in everything and the sun always shines!
