Doxy's Pool Oils on canvas board 7 x 5 inches SOLD
As legends have it....there is a mermaid called Jenny Greenteeth living in this pool.
She must have been out when I called but I love the stories about her enticing people into a watery grave. Some say it is a bottomless pool. It is a beautiful place for her to live on top of the Roaches in the Peak District.
I was on a walking holiday when we climbed up this rock formation...about 1500 ft...I am informed. The guide didn't mention this pool wanting it to be a surprise. And it was. So serene and in September the weather was colourful, fresh and breezy with the occasional rain squall.
I have abstracted the scene a little, well, a lot actually, to put my own stamp on it. I liked making the shapes with little flourishes of Anne Wood for good measure.
