NH469 ‘Reflections - Fishing Boat (Number 1)’ 12 x 12 inches    30.5 x 30.5 cm    Acrylic on Canvas    2015 
   A balancing point between figurative and abstract is created by capturing a moment of ever-changing surface pattern. A predominantly red and white fishing boat with yellow rigging,  together with a clear blue sky, is reflected on the distorting  mirror-like smooth water. The strong  colours sweep across the surface in diagonal undulating bands.
