The subject for this painting is derived from the character, Gerty McDowell, from James Joyces (1882-1941) Ulysses. The children in the painting suggest those whom Gerty and her friend, Cissy, were looking after on Sandymount Beach in Dublin on 16th June 1904 - Bloomsday.

My interpretation is loosely based on the children playing on the beach in tranquil, idyllic, peaceful and uncluttered surroundings in the safety of the very tidal Sandymount Beach.

This watercolour painting is based on an original idea taken from the writings and wanderings of James Joyce.
