Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches..

I have recently reclaimed an area of painting that is sometimes maligned or perhaps percieved as dated by the artworld; the impressionist beach scene. I like to think this allows me to paint without feeling like I need to challenge or push any boundaries as I am working in an area which is not really considered 'contemporary'- albeit we all know 'contemporary' is just lip service to an outmoded 'avant garde' notion and nothing is really that new anyway and justs pretends to be - so impressionist beach scenes are great for me - being ignored gives me the space to flex my paint muscles.
