Penny Bearman 2021 Paintings
This page displays new 2021 paintings with a few pre-covid and summer 2020 moments in time.
A year at home creates more thought I think and perhaps a little less celebration, but none-the-less 2021 brings with it a new spirit of optimism and appreciation of our unique local community.
The Pink gap, showing a glimpse of the seafront at Walmer 20"x10"

Seafront buildings 16x20" 2020.
Walking on the pier. Although this looks like a lot of people, there is a one way system on our pier now, so groups come towards us on the right and back to town on the left. This is a small but very thickly painted. I put it in the window of the Seaward Gallery before I remembered to measure it. 2021.
This seafront painting was adjusted in the summer of 2020 to feature the cyclists, the previous painting showing women below had a slightly different perspective.
This is large, 24x36
These paintings show pre-covid times. Perhaps the only difference in these paintings is imagined. People on holiday in Deal always look at ease, even in the covid summer season in July 2020.
