BEACH PARTY?

BEACH PARTY

Right now any picture of crowded beach draws chagrin from many quarters.

The current issue of Vanity Fair carried a detailed piece on the push me pull you nature of the current US Administration over Covid-19. The magazine’s report was centred on the to’ings and fro’ings in the March April period. 

 

This editorial is particular prescient, in early July in the USA over 40,000 cases a day are being recorded. We can only hope this reduces and improves.

 

VF article (opening spread shown here) carried a remarkable picture of a beach in Miami. Seeing it, I was compelled to use it as the basis for a painting. The photograph is a great composition and as much fun to paint as those folk were having on the beach.



 

Hopefully my piece is not read as artistic ambulance chasing.
