Fantastic Sally Swatland Paintings: Children on the Beach
Written by Emily   
Saturday, 24 January 2009

Images of the sea have long captivated our imagination and have been a popular source of inspiration for artists who have found a sympathetic audience with their work. Contemporarily, Sally Swatland’s images 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. 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. Her work has become highly sought after for these qualities which are inherent in her work.

"My favorite images are of children playing along the water's edge, mirrored by bright and colorful reflections".

~ Sally Swatland

Those are some really beautiful paintings. Kids look to cute when they are playing in sand next to the waterside. I like the painting with the little boy sitting near the water who brought his own sailboat with him.
