Is this. Rhyl Sands, by David Cox from the 1880s. Glorious. Simple. Impressionistic. Ah, the year’s I’ve stood in front of this picture, losing myself in it’s beauty. Please Santa, I’ve been a very good girl.
And the cranes. And the butterflies. And the tiles. The tiles!! No two the same. Like snowflakes. Such variations in colour. Such beauties. To own just one. I’d frame it, and admire it every day.
What is life if not to dream?
