Fishguard, Turning of the Tide
The painting "Turning of the Tide" depicts a harbour town at the moment when the tide is turning. The sun is shining, and the water is calm. The catch is in, the boats prepared for the next voyage. The painting is a beautiful and serene depiction of a moment of change.
The colors are vibrant, energetic, but the overall tone of the painting is peaceful. The painting is a reminder that even in the midst of change, there is always beauty to be found.
The painting is also a metaphor for the passage of time. The tide is always turning, and the world is always changing. The painting reminds us that we should not be afraid of change, but instead embrace it. Change is a part of life, and it can be a beautiful thing.
I often think of the many paintings and prints that have gone from my hands into the homes and hearts of others. And how the simple pleasure I have had in creating them continues in another person’s life and home. And then I think, it’s not a bad occupation, it’s perhaps one of the best jobs in the world, to share these simple pleasures.
