Artists Take The Plunge: Part III- More Pool Paintings

NOTE: You are on an old site. Find this and all new posts here

....continued from yesterday's post Artist's Take The Plunge Part II, which featured paintings of people swimming, in and around pools.

Now take a look at some of paintings of children in pools:

A few of Michael Blessing's paintings:

and Wendy Willis' work:

Pipa Lehar's "Poolside":

and Fiona Jack's "Learning To Swim":

Clearly, another popular subject are people hanging poolside, as witnessed by these numerous appealing renderings:

Above: DJ Hall's "Above It All"

Above: Terry Rodger's "Burfield's"

Above: Bea Kuhlke's "The Pool"

Above: Scott Bricher's "St.John Pool"

Above: Laura Loe's "At The Pool"

Above: Kay Crain's "Ladies by The Pool"

Above: Robert Floyd's "Poolside"

And At Night:

Not to be missed, are these fabulous, further abstracted depictions of people in pools:

By Isca Greenfield Sanders:

Lisa Wright:


Above: Moto Kotsuki's serene "poolside"

I could go on and on.

I have undoubtedly left out hundreds of talented artists who paint pools and people in them. So, forgive me. I just hope you can appreciate the small sampling of talent I found and find their work as inspiring and captivating as I do.

Be sure to read Part I (great paintings of pools without people) and Part II (paintings of people swimming).
