The Minch
acrylic on canvas, 24″ × 12″
print available

This painting was inspired after visiting a very energetic and powerful exhibition by the late Joan Eardley, one of Scotlandʼs finest artists.  Her energy, especially in her Catterline paintings (made in the North-East of Scotland) drove me to paint with fresh and renewed energy.  This imaginative image is a comon daily scene in the dangerous waters of the Minch where Lewis men bravely fish in all weathers.
