I painted this while struggling through the end of another winter. Much as I like to be present to the seasons, I was dreaming of high summer. In the warm crumbling rocks there are a wealth of hues, complemented by the tuft of Sea Pink (Armeria maritima) – that I always call Thrift – and the brilliant yellow and bleached glaucous green of the lichens.
I love the miniature landscapes that one can find on a rocky coast. Here among the dramatic moraines and deep chasms, life is everywhere.
