....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:

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).
