Most of us have a particular view taken whilst on holiday that we treasure for some reason. The sunrise over the sea, the lights over the mountains from a setting sun or people we met from far afield. Lots of us have cameras ready to record places visited and experiences that will stay with us. But artists have an additional skill that can record these things with extra feeling.

We can frame an extra large version of those things that enchanted us at the time or just re-create them in our favourite medium. The memories flood back as we reproduce them on canvas or paper and the holiday is not forgotten so quickly. It can be on display for years in a chosen spot to bring back that feeling of relaxation and good humour. It might become a talking point when viewed and it just might become a masterpiece.
