For a while a few years back I was dreaming about using a particular blue in one of my paintings, but I was not sure where I was going to use it. Eventually I decided to just get my paints together and paint whatever comes into my mind. I did and this is the result. It is a fantasy landscape, very simple, but powerful.
The Majestic Sea
The horizon calls to me, taunting an uncertain future.
It's accomplice, the clouds, grin a wide silver lining.
And somehow I collapse over the vanishing point, where the sea rolls over, weighed down by worry.
But then the arches show themselves, striding into the horizon like giants, courageous and mighty.
Taking what they wish from the future.
They tell me its empty, waiting for me to fill it, to paint my own scope into the barren canvas.
I realise now, though daunting it may seem, the sun will always rise from the horizon stretched out before me.
