This work reflects a special part of my life.  Many years of happy daily walks, rain or shine, with my black Labrador.

Like the margins of Cornwall generally, the skies changed suddenly and frequently but so too, the seaward route of the Hayle river.  This means that the channel markers you can see give only a rough indication and the bar was constantly shifting.  I would sometimes see even the local fishing boats briefly stuck on the bar where it hadn’t been the day before, waiting for the tide.  For several hours a day this means a scramble up the rocks to the left, to get round the point.

A lovely, peaceful place, the huge stretch of sand towards Carbis Bay never crowded, as there is no car park and no ice cream kiosk – or anything, really.  Lovely place and happy memories.

A medium sized painting, oil on canvas 76cm x 51cm,  in a wide recessed white wooden frame  Overall dimensions 96cm x71cm x 4cm.

I grew up on the north coast of Cornwall and although I’ve lived and worked in Southeast Asia, in Spain and in Scotland, all of which informed my work in different ways, Cornwall has always drawn me home.
