Ocean Pool, Sorrento – Australia

oil on linen

73 x 93 cm



Home to me all the years of my childhood, I know this place.

I know the great surge of the sea as it pounds against the cliffs, that crumble and change with every year,

the sea that retreats from the land and leaves these beautiful mossy pools in the rocks

that are left from the eroded shore, purple and green , irridescent in the summer light.
