Oh My July

Oh My July

Acrylic on canvas

8×8 inches


Oh My July, was painted in July.

When the lockdown was first announced I bought a cheap pool for the garden. I thought we wouldn’t have been allowed to leave our homes/gardens!

This is my daughter swimming in July. It was too cold before that to stay for too long in the pool. This song came into my head as I painted it.

July please,

I’m on my knees,

the smell of your fresh cut grass,

your blue sky grins

for all its sins…

Oh! ma ma ma, Oh! ma ma ma, oh! ma ma ma,

My July
