For most of my painting life my abiding interest has been light- it's both medium and the message of the painting. The ocean, in particular, is a mysterious contradiction- which is why it hypnotises artists. while it is larger and more ancient and enduring than our mountains, it is fast moving and energised and ever renewing. To paint it - especially it''s details is impossible. Even photographs capture only the deep stillness- never the fast changes in patterns, reflections of foam and currents. 
Like many before me I start to see ancient mythologies in this turbulence and I am reminded again of Heraclitus saying 2500 years ago "we both step and do not step in the same rivers. We are and are not""
