Forbidden Meeting


I found the inspiration for this painting  in a box of bric a brac. Just a small photo taken so long ago when photography was hardly the snap and run affair it is today.

I expect the Edwardian couple knew the photo was being taken but I get the feeling there was an awkwardness in their meeting, as though they shouldn’t be there. Of course I  let my imagination run riot and called the painting “Forbidden Meeting” imagining that they were star crossed lovers stealing a moment together on a windswept beach.

Mary Kemp

I am an impressionist painter with a fondness for going down to the seaside with sketchbook in hand. The seaside is at the heart of much that I paint. Even when I paint a landscape I'm thinking of it in relation to the coast.  I've been creating art for quite a while now. I went to Salisbury College of Art , and just knew I had to paint for the rest of my life.  I've exhibited in galleries, and gift shops, department stores, craft fairs, open exhibitions, open studio events and even open air events. It's a great adventure. Nowadays I embrace the internet which has seen my horizons expanded so that my work is regularly shipped to the USA.
