This small, landscape painting is of a well-known lighthouse in Denmark on the coast of the North sea called Rubjerg Knude. Sadly the battering by the sea and wind will eventually erode away the sands it stands on and it will crumble into the sea in the near future.
The day I visited it was windy and the air was full of sand giving everything a slightly sand-coloured blurred appearance.
The words painted across it are reminiscent of the beginning of a story or poem, leaving the viewer to imagine what that story might be. This work was exhibited with other works of mine and members of the well-regarded poetry group LitLab each picked a painting as inspiration for a poem, which they read at the launch night.
