Waterfront, Cathedral north transept - will be re-installed at Grace, October, 2019
Waterfront, a five panel oil painting explores the beauty and simultaneous power and delicacy of the ocean. This painting, brings the viewer in close as the water is shaped and blown apart by the physics of tidal movement, wind and shoreline. With intense environmental pressures on ocean life and rising global sea levels, our dependence and responsibility for care of the oceans and pushing back temperature rise is a front worth joining.
