Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

For much of the 80's I worked as a commercial fisherman often fishing for crab and lobster, frequently on the West side of the Outer Hebrides. We fished, depending on weather, out at St Kilda and the West side of Harris, Scarp and Mealasta. Gales from the West were what we feared most as the creels were vulnerable to the enormous seas that got up from the Atlantic with remarkable speed. We landed our catch on a weekly basis into Lochmaddy on the East side of N. Uist and the route in was via the Sound of Harris, a shallow rock-strewn passage between Harris and N. Uist. This painting is of the Western approach to the Sound as the weather closed in from the NW and squalls of rain swept across Harris and the little islet of Pabbay.
