This watery vista is titled Coineadh na Mara, (The Lament of the Sea).
Like anyone who walks the beach and finds a beautiful shell or piece of driftwood that they want to bring home, in a similar way, on my walks, I collect color impressions from the sky and sea at sunset and bring them back to the studio.
This painting swirls together impressions, sense, imagination to recall and recapture a magical and diaphanous late evening light, the one that turn’s the sea to marbled milk and makes the sky blush and bruise with rose. A sunset sky is nature’s way of teaching us how to let go …
The Sea holds the memory.
