Title: Desirability
Year: 2021
Size: circular 40cm
Technique: Oil on circular 40cm canvas board

With vibrant hues of blue, bold tones of red and white, this piece is all about confidence and preparation. A glance back to the days when going to the beach was a true fashion af-fair with friends / family, or alone just to escape the pace of city life. "Desirability" is part of the "Beach Life" collection and sits alongside "Life's a Beach", "Tranquility" and “Ver-satility”.
After a day relaxing on the sun kissed beach, the lady is applying the final make up touch-es ready for a night out. Looking into the mirror on her handbag, is she thinking back to her time on the beach, watching people pass by, listening to conversations, whilst soaking up the sun? Or is she contemplating a night out with a mystery date?
Top this off with a circular piece of artwork, the original of which has been set into a stun-ning antique walnut frame with a ring of gold. You could almost be admiring the view through the porthole of a vintage boat.
