I learned swimming when I was a very little girl, about 3 years ago. Me and my family were spending the summer holidays by the sea in the South of Spain. My parents took me into the water far away from the beach where I could not stand any more. And then suddenly they let me free and said
“You are on your own now!”
Well, I had no other choice then learning swimming! No teacher, nothing, just the need to survive! A brutal method, and could have resulted traumatic, I suppose. But I was a tough little thing and it worked wonders. Swimming has been since then a very important art of my life. I love all sports, but swimming is the one I have been practising about 5 days the week in the last 45 years.
But it is only recently that I thought of doing some swimming paintings. I have a series painted to illustrate a book called “Into Deep”, and which I hope to finish one day. The story of Red Jean, a bad siren living at the bottom of the ocean next to a plane wrack and attacking the beautiful male swimmers in search for a suitable lover! I know, it sounds kitschy, but the story is not really, inspired by a true dramatic event that happened to me those days…
“The Art Of Backstroke Swimming”
