Sunset from Brighton Beach, Australia

Michael Francis Cartwright


oil on linen

73 x 93 cm


On the beach of my childhood, watching a turbulent sea in a turbulent sunset.

The sheer expanse of the Australian sky, the horizons that go on forever,

to express all the colour that is there before it dips below the curve of the earth.
