Storm Bryher

This is a painting I keep coming back to time and again……inspred from experiences of the winter storms on the Isles of Scilly during several artist in residencies that I took part in through Gallery Tresco on the Isles of Scilly. I first began work on this painting in 2009, it has gone through many stages and on occasion in various exhibitions, but somehow I have always managed to keep it. It is my most favorite painting, and every now and then I will take it of the wall and work a little bit more on it. Like nature it is a work in progress evolving and as ever it remains unfinished.

Sunset – Winter Storm

Welcome to my blog. I am starting this with one of my recent sales. This painting sold to a couple from Wales. The painting came about from my experiences of cycling and walking during this years winter storms along the coast between St Just and Land’s End. If I had to pick a particular place……as I was asked by the couple who bought the painting, then as I said to them it would be Porth Nanven beach which is very close to where I live and the rocks just visible in the foam of the crashing waves are where my children and I can often be found swimming in the summer…….
