Inspiration from the craggy rocks of ‘St. Ninians Cave’
Well, it’s been a crazy couple of months with Mum passing away unexpectedly and having to rush back to Scotland for the funeral. But in a weird way, it has been life-affirming too, I hadn’t been back home for over 11 years or so and had no inclination of doing so until the news came through, but was a great time to reflect and catch up with friends that I hadn’t seen in 11 years and more. There was so much that hadn’t changed since I left which was quite comforting in a way.
It was a form of peace for me to visit some of my old haunts around the village of my upbringing. I managed to visit a few beaches which I spent many a summer on, one of my all-time favorites was Monreith Bay which is situated in the Dumfries and Galloway (South West Scotland) Nested between The Isle of Whithorn and Port William.
I gained great inspiration from the rock formations and managed to make a piece whilst staying at Dad’s house. See Below
