On the Beach

A Walk by Sea
Low tide reflections
Early morning on the Island
I love the artist, Sally Swatland. Her paintings of young children playing on the beaches are tinged with a sense of nostalgia that reminds us of a bygone time, when a day at the beach offered respite from the busyness of daily life.

The Sand Dollar
Her sensitive images evoke the reminiscences of a period when life was uncomplicated and happiness was found in the simplest of activities. This is just one of the aspects of Sally’s work that audiences are drawn to - the sense that through her pictures one can retreat into the past.

Her light-filled palette of rich colors also expresses the richness of a flowering garden and the breeze of a summer day.
