Galway City native Anne painted this picture of the famous diving tower at Blackrock, Salthill. This picture is particulary poignant, as, in normal times, there are swimmers at Blackrock every single day of the year, with Christmas Day being a particular favourite. Anne says:
“Definitely not comfortable with describing myself as an artist. I was inspired to paint this iconic neighbourhood scene after a thoughtful birthday gift from my sister. I hadn’t painted for decades, pretty much abandoning it after a year of art school when I was 16. However, having enjoyed this painting thoroughly, I will definitely keep it up and hope to improve!”
