Here is an iPad sketch I did thinkin' about my next painting. I don't know how clear it is but the red is the ocean and the grey is beach rocks.

It is symbolic of course of my friend that passed away. But also of life in Newfoundland. I miss the ocean and I miss my home but standing on those rocks sometimes you can feel all of the sadness and destruction that place can bring you. I will forever be attached to it and never escape it no matter how far away I move. It is a part of me and I am a part of it.

You can always go home but you can never leave.

  1. You sketched this on your iPad?! Seriously? This is beautiful!!! It's also a perfect depiction of a friend that has passed on (sorry).

    So, thanks for the words just now. I was actually thinking the same thing...

    Anyway, back to your art - I'm looking forward to seeing what this looks like as a painting!
