On a perfect day, the hours stretch endlessly ahead. Scribbling with chalk, running with kites, digging for shells … paddling, climbing, dreaming. Hour unfolds upon hour, with reassuring comfort and sleep beckoning at the end.
Danny Parker captures the simplicity, spontaneity and freedom of an idyllic childhood, while Freya Blackwood s paintings of three children roaming a rolling beachside idyll capture the light and even the smell and feel of a perfect summer day.
