Painting No. 57 – Title: “Of Golden Sands, Sun & Sea” Sept 2014
Early in 2014, my husband and I went to visit my sister at her Broadbeach home, which is just south of Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Broadbeach has beautiful surf beaches that stretch for miles in either direction of the shore line. It faces onto the great Pacific Ocean and has a big blue sky that saws up into the heavens and beyond. It has a subtropical climate and most of the year it favours warm temperatures and has a summer wet season. All this makes it a major holiday destination.
It was a real privilege to be able to spent days enjoying its sun, sand and sea. My Sister was a great host and ensured we enjoyed our stay. I have very fond memories of my time there with my husband and my sister. The painting is dedicated to that memory. In the top left and right corner you can see a representation of the sun; below is the Pacific Ocean and then its golden sands. The frangipanis’, the palm and other flowers and subtropical plants shown in the painting can be found in her garden.
