I told you already that I am a big fan of David Hockney’s Swimming Pool pics. Then have a look at the paintings below and maybe you can imagine my reaction when I first saw the creations by artist Samantha French who paints swimmers underwater and above. I was catched immediately by the blue colour, the movement of the water and the distinct light on the swimmers bodies. At once I had to think back on long days at the public swimming pool in my childhood. These were hot days with a lot of ice-cream and french fries. So let us hope that this summer will be hot enough to have long swimming sessions. – Then I will dive underwater and open my eyes and compare the world I will see with the art of Samantha French.
I wish you all a good weekend filled with heat and new perspectives!
