his latest paintings continues with his absorption and focus upon the sea, the isolated subtle shapes of boats, silently drifting, the weathered ,washed and
worn surfaces, the subtle curves of the hull, fore and aft, the drifting
stillness of the solitary hull, mirrored in the waters, symmetrical, reflected and floating within a sea of calm,
the sea merging into the drama of the skies above, the fiery red of burning
sunset clouds, the subtle softness of the waning light of day, the glow of dusk
or of a deeper twilight sky, and upon the horizon, pinpricks of distant lights,
still just apparent through the paleness of the harbour evening.....lights from
buildings, a burning incandescence within the night, reflected and shimmering
in the inky depths below, lights delineating the horizon, the atmosphere, the
colour and mood of the skies above.
