I have an infinity with the island of Bardsey.

I have visited around 12 times in the last 8 years. It's a place where I meet with God, pray deeply and am often in soitude and silence. It is also a place where I flex my creative skills and push techniques and ways of painting. I often use new materials and seek to be led by the Spirit in how I paint. 

Recently I have served as chaplain and for the first week I was without any art materials, even any canvases. I didn't even have pens and paper! I had forgotten the art materials back at home safely at the front door ready for me to pack them into the car! So I spent the first week soaking in what I saw and did some simple water colours that I had borrowed from my daughter. For the second week I splurged out lots of paintings!

It's as if I soaked it all in and then let the scenes and feel of the island flow out.

This painting is on a A2 wooden board. It is created using acrylic inks pastels and pen, spray paint and acrylic inks and a lovely gold leaf paint too! It not only captures the scenes and moments of the island but how I feel about the place too. I am always struck by the line of the mountain and hills and I have sought to capture these in the painting.
