Beach Hut 13
Janette Tozer has been a great supporter of the Beach Hut Advent Calendar ever since it began and has produced a painting for us every year so far. Tonight her subject was Mary and she produced a new artwork for hut number 374 which is owned by one of her art students.
The evening was cold and misty which gave a lovely atmosphere to the event as the hut glowed in the candlelight and families came towards us through the golden light of the seafront lamp posts.
We had lots of children visiting tonight and it was great to hear their shouts as they ran around the promenade and in and out of the beach huts and to think of Mary listening out for the cry of her baby when he was born and his laughter and tears as he grew up.
Janette also enlisted the help of other artists including a nun who paints icons and collage artist Jenny Buchanan.
Next hut is close to the King Alfred and is number 177.
