This is one of 5 small paintings produced of these small fishing boats.
Sunderland Point is a small village among the marshes on a windswept peninsula between the mouth of the River Lune and Morecambe Bay near the City of Lancaster, England - and not far from my studio in Cumbria.
Strictly speaking 'Sunderland Point' is the name of the tip of the peninsula on which the village of Sunderland stands, but the name is frequently applied to the village itself. It was used as a port for slave ships and cotton ships but its importance declined as other ports such as Lancaster opened up. It is unique in the United Kingdom as being the only community to be on the mainland and yet dependent upon tidal access. The only vehicular access to the village via a road which is covered by water at every high tide.
This painting is complete with a beautifully handmade and hand finished white frame - which leads the eye right into the work. Signed by me on the front and reverse this painting is ready to hang.
