Oils on Canvas - 16 x 12 inches

We took our 4 year old Grandaughter Gracie across to Tynemouth in the the summer of 2018. We were lucky in that for once the weather stayed true to the reports, hot and sunny

I was really impressed with this area, but I have to admit to avoiding it ever since an awful school trip to Whitley Bay when I was a child. Irrational, as it was so very long ago, and very silly of me as the whole area was so improved to my earlier trip, very impressive and a great day was enjoyed by us all but particularly Gracie

The painting is based upon that day and tries to capture Gracies simple joy at just running free as a bird in the shallows and having fun with lots of other children
