The painting “Never Rest” is inspired by exploring some of the lesser known and more isolated wildernesses along the U.K.'s coastline. The West Coast of Scotland is probably referenced more than anywhere else in this painting. The untouched, rugged shores with the backdrop of quick changing and unpredictable weather; the haunting skies, low sun, long shadows and wild clouds; you can feel the motionless air devoid of sound apart from the waves hitting the beach. It makes one more conscious of their self. Up close you have winding rock pools, but you look up and see, resting on the horizon, the distant islands coming in and out of view, fighting their way through the mist. The bleak is balanced with the wild.
