This painting took me several months to complete. Originally it was intended to represent a big red sail that I saw on the north coast of Sealand in Denmark. This is actually where I got married - 2nd time around. However, I left if hanging in the studio and kept coming back to it, making changes. Just didn't feel that it was finished, and it has changed a lot over time. The title came from the original idea. I don't feel that it is a sail anymore, rather something a lot more mysterious. As with all my works, I like to gauge into the underlying surface to reveal what was there before.
