Pearl cottage

Composed as a gentle beach walk from east to west before and after 'the storm'.

Pearl was also known internationally as 'The Smokery' the oldest landmark building on Dungeness beach.

The distinctive tall, thin roof profile, cedar shingles, primrose yellow details, characterful stack and chimney pot which cheerfully signified it's important role as the smoking family hearth - also alluded to the family trade since..... 'back in the days'.

These paintings form a heartfelt contemplation on the passage of time and the poetic influence of this fragile beach as we know it..
