Artist's Description

Soliloquy… A dramatic form of discourse in which a character talks to himself or reveals thoughts without addressing a listener. Here, the sandbar seems to shout its presence while the sailboat sings its own song, each in total disregard of the other. So is the subject the sailboat or the sandbar? Perhaps it’s the sky that has the final say in this little drama of harmony and serenity.

This photograph suggests the style of John Constable (1776 – 1837) who was an English Romantic painter. He is known principally for his landscape paintings of the area surrounding his home which he invested with an intensity of affection. “I should paint my own places best”, he wrote to his friend John Fisher in 1821, “painting is but another word for feeling”.
