The Playful Dunes

They beckon in the summer casting an allure of sparkling seas and warm sands.

Winter, not so  much; repelling in the austere cold of a windswept, below zero prospect of fortitude.

The North Shore

It is an old shore, this north shore. Exploring the coast on canvas, I searched out the qualities of the grasses; I asked about the shapes of the cliffs and in so doing tried to capture that elusive colour and movement of the water.

 It is an internal conversation with unseen links and threads --  and surfaces again with a need for expression.
