The Real Boats

Zeli said it was 'the best Sheringham ever' and  I am inclined to agree with her. We have just been on our annual weekend visit to this sea-side resort with 23 members of the family and certainly, we all had a jolly time. Except, I always feel a bit sad when some members of the family don't make it, because it's lovely seeing everyone interacting with each other and catching up on the passed year.
This uncertainty about whose coming, is the theme of my current painting, 'If The Boats Come In' and I have used our annual trip to the boating pond to symbolise how some family members may not always make it, even if they are really trying too. The title is deliberately ambiguous.
 On the real pond, it was very windy this year and most of the sailing boats had a hard time just keeping upright. Another idea for a painting, maybe.
