Beach Dreams, 2017
The woman and beach chairs are based on a photograph released from copyright by the National Archives of the Hague, Netherlands, The photo is dated to 1917. I created an imaginary landscape and gave the resting woman a 'Cinderella' gown and cape, but no glass slippers. The original showed an apparently hard-working woman with heavy shoes resting in the sun.
