Victor Yachts

There are few yacht clubs that can boast such beautiful sorroundings as the Victor Harbor Yacht Club. To the artist's eye the club is landmarked by a row of mature pines that act as a dark backdrop to the sails that are hoisted and pulled down before and ending the day's sailing – it's a wonderful sight.
The pines have arms to bring us home,
They call us back to land.
The pines protect our club of sails,
And shade our blessed sand.

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.
