In summertime its wonderful to see the North East beaches fill up with families enjoying a day at the seaside. The windbreaker may seem like a distant memory of the past but the striped fabric constructs are very much in use on North East beaches to offer some shelter from the cool breeze that comes in over the North Sea.

This painting, Windbreaker and Sand in Your Sandwich, is a homage to those childhood summers where we spent a day at the seaside with a picnic, sheltering behind a windbreaker.
