Sovereign Shingle

Posted by Phil Hawker on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, In : Pictures and Paintings 

Houses and flats for homes; the harbour for watery refuge; wooden groynes to hold the beach in place; Martello Tower no 66 to remind us of more violent, invasive times.

All these features, planned and built by us, are outlived by the natural beauty of the coast. Sea-smoothed pebbles; hardened empty shells and starfish help to remind us of life where sea meets shore.

Julia's latest painting

Posted by Julia Hawker on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, In : Pictures and Paintings 
And here it is, finished at last, my latest painting, called 'Swim To Greet the Sun'. I do hope you like it. I think it's the most colourful one I've painted.

It was bought after being spotted, very much incomplete, on Facebook. On Sunday, Phil and I had the great pleasure of delivering it to its new owner. Luckily, she ...
