Swallows and Amazons

In lieu of not painting much from watching the Olympics, this is something I did a couple of years ago from an old photograph. Not sailboats, as in the story, Swallows and Amazons, but rowboats and a place of happy memories from my own young years. A local beauty spot it sadly closed in 1960 due to changing trends and lack of support and funds. The frame is just the virtual variety for effect.

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Didn't want to start a new thread as the topic is already up. This is just a fantasy thing for fun today. I titled it "Swallow and Amazon on Lake Windermere". You may have noticed I like boats....
