Seapoint, 6x4 ins oil on linen on board. This little painting is of a group  of women chatting at a popular bathing area in Dublin, between Blackrock and Monkstown, near Dun Laoghaire. The older ladies were there for the social aspect, whilst the woman in the bathing costume was intent on taking a swim in the sea, on what was a brisk day, as I recall. What attracted me was the orange bathing cap, complimenting the blue bathing costume. The composition was bigger originally, with more figures, but it worked better, I felt as this.
