Original Acrylic Painting, Fishing in the Gambia

Community Fishing in the Gambia

Community Fishing in the Gambia

I’ve tried several times to take a picture of this painting. I framed it under glass so it always reflected a light or shadows. This time I took it out of the frame before taking the photo, but it still shows a bit of light reflected from the window.

About caroleparkes

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.

  1. Still a dreamy quality about it. Kind of hazy, as if heat is rising. 🙂

    And to think that so many people just work the 40 hrs and watch TV, you are amazing artist, and power to us all, God Bless You MRS. Parkse

      Thank you for your lovely comment, but you give me far more credit than I’m worth. These paintings are over a five year period, my craft items from about ten years ago, and my stories were written over many years. I spent over twelve years of my life on my family history and during this time I hardly did any writing apart from family histories. So the items I post are not newly completed and I’m definitely not some kind of superwoman. I only wish i were, ha ha. 🙂


  3. That is stunning Carole 😀

      Thank you Chris. By the way, thanks for reblogging my previous post ‘Lets Lirn Inglish Grammer 3’. I looked on your site for somewhere to thank you, but could only see your e-mail address. I wanted to give you credit publicly as you’ve always given me (and many others) lots of support.

    You evoke the feeling and colour of Africa so beautifully with this one Carole ❤

    What a lovely painting – beaches are not easy to paint but you’ve done a great job of capturing the grainy quality of sand! Jan
