Most all of the examples shown are beautiful and complement the architecture like a great piece of art. We can all dream about what it must be like to have enough wealth to own property with majestic views and expensive architecture. For myself, I live in a more modest accommodation with a lot that allows me a taste of the good life. I acted as my own contractor when we built our pool saving enough money to build our own 50' long lap pool. We have swum countless laps and hosted numerous "Hawaiian" parties over the years.

As a artist from Amsterdam I like to add "my" swimming pool to this wonderful story. With a diving board which is the other subject of the painting. Because swimming pools and diving boards are not only for swimming and diving. They do more, they communicate that special feeling and excitement. Presenting "THE DIVING BOARD".

Wow, I love seeing all of these small swimming pools. It is cool that they are all lap pool. Swiming for exercise seems like a great way to stay healthy. I wonder how hard it is got get a pool like these installed in your home.
