Sand Martins Daily Toil

This is a beautiful three-in-one painting. I am an open water swimmer in my spare time and these artworks are inspired by one of my favourite swimming spots ‘Carolines’ (nick-named after the lady who first discovered it as a suitable swim location). These paintings are views from in the water and really do reflect the unique atmosphere of peace and tranquility found there. They feature the joyful Sand Martins, that playfully swoop within inches of your head during the Spring and early Summer months, and it reflects their busy lifestyle, never stopping – morning, noon and night.
