Purple Music (Suffolk) LLP

deckchair

Purple Moments were invited by the organiser of Suffolk Coastal Deckchairs, Ann McBride, to design and paint a deckchair canvass as part of a unique collection to be auctioned to raise funds for St Elizabeth Hospice in Suffolk. Stuart Stevens and Chantelle Love composed a piece for guitar and flute called “Moments in a Purple Deckchair”.

The score was then written in pencil on a deckchair canvass and painstakingly completed in ink and acrylics by Gordon Soames and Chantelle Love.The entire collection of canvasses were due to tour Suffolk before thirty went under the hammer at a gala auction at Trinity Park in Ipswich on October 1st. The remaining designs were to form part of an online auction due to end on October 29 2010.
