“The Pipe” is our local break. So called for the old (and decommissioned – thank goodness) sewerage pipe that goes out to sea there. When it works it is wonderful, when it turns ugly its a challenge. Most other days it is just great to be out there surrounded by beach and mountains. At the end of 2008 I set out to conquer, once and for all my hesitation for painting on site and I started sitting on the dunes, painting the break. Now I have many of these paintings and those I have not sold are presented here.
In the evenings, when I often go down there, the light changes all the time. So though I am getting to know the mountains, they are never the same.
