Pool Towels are Softer at Tennis Clubs

 

21 September – 8 October

Act like you belong and nobody will ask. Thank goodness you wore that silk scarf. Smile politely at the maître d’ in her tennis whites and request two towels. Success. Nestle into that polyester pool lounge and position your adjustable sunshade. Call for two margaritas. 

 

“Pool Towels Are Softer At Tennis Clubs” is a series of paintings based on a recent trip to California. The works are derived predominantly from motels, bars and clubs in Palm Springs and Los Angeles. Rarely was I staying or dining at any of them but it was our honeymoon and we managed to pull on some heartstrings.
