Quiet morning along Frenchmans bay, Rye
Acrylic on canvas, 1220mm x 91mm
Walking along the shingle beach at Rye harbour known as Frenchmans bay, the tide was low and the sea was almost like a mill pond. The structure of the port harbour light was the only thing interrupting the horizon.

This scene captured a moment on Rye beach in Kent. It was a beautiful bright but cold January day and not long before sun set. Leala our boarder collie had just come from running in the sea at low tide to look for my partner Kathy (wearing warm clothes and a hat with ear flaps!). Who can be seen as the main silhouetted figure in view.

When walking along Botany bay beach in Kent with my partner Kathy this scene presented itself. Kathy had received a text message and was in the process of replying to it when she walked into a beam of sunlight which illuminated her head and shoulders. As an on looker it felt as though Kathy was in communication with someone on the other end of the beam.

This scene has FE180 making another appearance. This time viewed from her stern. She’s carrying a passenger. Its not the Gull thats in passage but the boat itself, on a journey of decay from being an old boat on a beach to becoming a part of it.

This old trawler is another of the wooden fishing boats that were abandoned on the shoreline of Dungeness, left to slowly disappear but as a young couple pass her she appears to head into the wind as if to follow them, the rye grass taking on the roll of the sea that would have passed under her.

Boudica on the embankment.
Boudica looks out across the Thames while the Friday evening rush hour traffic heads home for the weekend. The sun begins to set on the horizon of city and the lights come on for the night.
