Cape Paterson is where I grew up with my family on holidays. First we started in the caravan park and then Mum and Dad got a holiday house on stilts. I loved it down there. My Brother and I both joined the Surf Life Saving Club. I ended up designing their club tracksuits when I got older. I was never the surfer; I was more into my dogs and horses. My brother however excelled at it. This painting is about those times watching him and also being on patrol as a Surf Life Saver.
