Summer vacation is drawing to a close, many of you are making preparations for the back-to-school excitement, but there's still a couple of weeks left before the Labor Day holiday and what better way to spend it than a day at the beach? 

During a summer holiday in Europe, Chuck Jones made a stop in the Isles of Scilly just off the southwestern coast of Cornwall in Great Britain.  Moderate in climate and one of the sunniest places in the kingdom, the Isles of Scilly have long been a vacation destination for Britons and Europeans alike. 

Jones, traveling with his bag of art supplies, created several wonderful works of art while enjoying the pristine beauty of the Isles.  This watercolor of sunbathers soaking in the rays on the Isles of Scilly was used as the basis for a limited edition fine art reproduction on paper, limited to only 99 examples.
