Artist's Description

For a while in my twenties I lived on Great Cumbrae which is a small island in the Firth of Clyde overlooking Little Cumbrae to the south and the isle of Arran in the distance. It was with a Christian community based at the Cathedral of the Isles which is Britain’s smallest Cathedral and an architectural gem. It is now used as a retreat centre.

As with Iona the Cumbraes were one of the places that early Irish monks settled. They must have been tough as the weather could be atrocious. Columba swam in the sea every day.
This was painted a couple of years ago after visiting it and getting stuck there for a day due to full scale hurricane force winds. I tried here to capture the sense of it the waves were not particularly tall but the sea was white. It was scary but I felt safe viewing it from the beautifully and newly refurbished Garrison building.
Oil painting on primed board approx 300x 200
