"I was very fortunate to spend the majority of lockdown in one of the most beautiful parts of England, Northumberland. This encouraged me to go out and do en plein air studies. This painting now serves as an encouragement of staycations, which is what so many of us turned to in the face of cancelled flights and potential quarantines. The summer of 2020, made me wonder why we so often seek a hot country, a swimming pool, and a nice cocktail, when the UK has so much to offer in its beauty, history and tranquility."
