A view from the shore of Ross Back Sands. From a series of outdoor oil paintings completed on location along the Northumberland coast in Summer 2015.
Oil on hand prepared, heavyweight paper. Signed and dated on the front and signed, dated and titled on the reverse.
The hurrying tumbling waves, quick-broken crests, slapping,
the strata of color'd clouds, the long bar of maroon-tint away solitary by itself,
the spread of purity it lies motionless in,
The horizon's edge, the flying sea crow, the fragrance of salt marsh and shore mud,
These become part of that child who went forth every day, and who now goes, and will always go forth every day.
(Walt Whitman, "There was a Child Went Forth")
