My last post! What a lovely experience this has been. Thank you to Grace for the opportunity and to all you readers for your sweet comments.
As summer comes to an end in northern hemisphere and slowly starts up in the south it seems right to look at all things watery. I’ve always collected images of water, almost by chance at first but now more consciously. Water plays a big role in my life. I grew up on the coast and we still live a few minutes drive from the beach – this summer was the first one my children were old enough to really enjoy the surf and it was such a pleasure to be in the ocean with them.
2. I love the dark figures in this black and white by Larry Nicosia.
3. You can almost feel the salt on your skin when you look at Eve Simone’s work – this one is aptly titled Summer Days
4. A sweet take on children at the beach by a Tel Aviv-based illustrator
5. A favorite piece from my friend Caroline Jones’s lovely water series. Our kids spend a lot of time swimming in her pool and this says summer to me every time I look at it.
