After the race – Seacliff

I just happened to be at the right place at the right time at Seacliff today. It was one of those days were the sun was popping in and out of the clouds which produces a patchwork of shadows across the sea and beach. Boats started to come in after the race and started to pack in for the day on the beach. It was an inviting sight that begged to be painted. This is the first of the series of Seacliff.

About Mike Barr

I paint what I love - sparsely populated beaches with big skies and wide shallows and rain-drenched city streets that sparkle with reflective light.
Of course, both these places are animated with human activity, such as beach walkers or those braving the elements of a rainy day,
and they add to the appeal of such scenes.

The sky usually plays a large part in my work.
From a very young age I have been fascinated with clouds and the moods of the sky and have always loveed a stormy day.
It is no surprise then that this is translated into my work.

My paintings aren't acquired because they match the curtains - they are windows in themslves.
They offer glimpses of where we have been or where we would like to be - places where the soul can linger for a while an rest.
