WAVE (900 wide X 900 high Oil)......Back to gallery

Actions sporn consequences; a breeze creates a ripple as a splash makes a wave that with time settles, or fanned by circumstances, matures as rolling swells that roam the oceans of the world.

The initial energy emanating from the splash is passed outwards to successive water particles along the path. The water that is the swell’s body, does not itself advance, but is rolled where it is, until finally the energy is revealed in foam on a distant shore.

A wave of substance or idea is perceived from a viewpoint; to the seaman is forever rolls forwards, to the fish, backwards. It requires imagination to conjecture at how it will affect us, to plan for mitigating its consequences or, with the skills of experience, ride it to a safe haven.
