My first series of works. It was a process of asking myself what kind of paintings describe a part of who I am. Something form my heart. The Sails series was the natural choice. Sailing has been a part of my life for many years. It was introduced to me through my wife and her family and the love of being on the water with friends and family have given me many great memory’s that I love.
When I have sailed, there is a sense of that I have some control and responsibility of where I am. I can steer the rudder and trim the sails to go where I want to go. But I don’t have control in the wind or sea that I am on. It is a lot like how I see life in myself and how circumstances can intervene. Winds will change and the sea may rise, but I must still sail. It is a beautiful thing for me to see life in sailing and sailing in life. I hope you are moved in the same way when seeing my SAIL series.
