"A Ship Moors in the Channel Islands", Acrylic on canvas, Los Angeles - Porto Rafti, July 2013
Owned by Steve and Xenia Burge, Pasadena California

In the night and blackness of these wild islands of the Pacific Ocean appears a glowing boat that defies the tempest and heads toward the craggy coastline. By itself, this contrast brings us hope.

The island inspires with its rugged coastline. It is painted in the night, as a storm comes in as a huge dark mass upon which huge waves crash. On the left, a boat can be seen as it defies the storm, and is pushed toward the rocks. To the right end of the canvas, between the rocks, there is the suggestion of a fossil of some ancient inhabitant of America, who appears at this turbulent time, as an enigmatic presence out of the past.
