Celebration, St Ives.

Celebration, St Ives.
Oil on stretched Canvas.
54 x 81cm or 21 x 32in.

A Celebration...A bigger painting than usual. I have just finished it, it is the right time of year and it is also my 500th painting posted up on this blog, and lastly new hope in America!  Celebrations all round.
So there you go, Christmas lights, wet sand, a sparkling and darkening sea, lights caught in bare branches, a Cornish town wrapping its arms around itself, harbour walls against the storms.
You really have to click on this one to see it properly, go on, click the picture and behold!
