The Beachcomber Girl
This is the first in
an ongoing set is the first painting I had published, on the calendar
front of the charity 'Mind in Tower Hamlets' the character in them is
influenced by a former girlfriend who was Sioux and Welsh ethnically .
Here she pauses at a sea wall to watch the sunrise as a Beachcomber
wave passes under her.

Caught out by a dawn
The Beachcomber looks
out to sea in chagrin as a darkening sky drives a Gull inshore too, a
day to hurry back home instead!
Beachcomber girl looks out to sea in chagrin at an incoming storm at
dawn, darkening the sky as it drives a seabird inshore and gives
the lighthouse renewed purpose . Not a day to be away beachcombing,
seeking out drift wood and sea glass for making jewellery or art, or whatever gifts of the
sea left among the beach pebbles or in the rock pools an outgoing
tide would leave, but one to stay at home in the lighthouse instead.

Miles from home
Our Beachcomber girl
takes a rest, realising the return journey will be as far as the
takes a seat on the rocks where the tides limit has piled great rows
of seaweed. A grey sky moves in over a green sea, she realises as
she looks across the bay that her lighthouse home has become very
distant, the walk back will be as long as the one out, but the
receding tide will offer smooth hard sand to ease her passage, and
hopefully there will be some gifts of the se to be found
on the way!
