Cottesloe Paintings

Cottesloe Beach opens your heart and lets the sun in.
Take a deep breath. Feel the sea breeze on your face.
The Indiana Tea House is our Sun Temple, presiding over all.
The majestic pines, the charm of the surf club and the sparkle of the water.

Just one look and you are right back there.

Original Cottesloe Beach art from Ken Rasmussen lets you celebrate the summer all year.
Take home the best beach in the world.

This landscape painting shows the city of Perth. You can see the beach stretching up from Fremantle through Cottesloe and beyond City Beach, Rottnest and the Swan River up to Freshwater Bay. The forests, lakes, houses, schools and playing fields of the city’s north west span the horizon. The city is dynamic, with people and families flowing in and out all of the time, symbolised by houses gently floating in and out of view. This painting is about being part of an aspirational community where a culture of learning is celebrated, lighting up our hopes and dreams for the future.

I really love Cottesloe. This painting is all about how it sparkles at night with the moon and the stars and the lights on the horizon. The light is still shining through, even in the darkest of times.

Here are two places that so many of us go to escape our routine. And relax. To me, the ships are our problems that can loom large when they are up close. Time and perspective sees them retreat to dots on the horizon.

It is a sunny day and you are in Cottesloe Village. The village is at the centre of the painting because it sits at the heart of the community. It’s a gathering place between the blue of the river and the blue of the ocean on the other side.

I sometimes think of the Indiana Teahouse as being like a Sun Temple where we gather around to worship warm weather and calm seas. In the summer we gaze out at Rottnest and remember the fine choice we have of being here or there.

Perth is a metropolis of the river and ocean, water flows all around us. We love the warmth and sunlight. At the heart of our city is the Sun Temple, the iconic Indiana Tea House and famous Cottesloe Beach building that serves as a monument to our love of the sun. Here is where we give thanks for the freedom and safety of this place.

Lights comfort us and guide us to safety. There’s a special peacefulness about lights at night – starlight, lights in windows, distant lighthouses. They cast a childhood spell over us.

Stars are peeping out at twilight. They sparkle on the water. There’s a slow moonrise. Headlights are leading us home. We share the precious seconds of a shooting star. All memories we keep close in a pocket.
