I really love this contemporary theme of black and white with just the one bright red umbrella! It can symbolise so many things in life and comes from the expression "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain".
This piece is one which is very close to my heart as it resembles 'Whitepoint', the beach nearest to my home where I grew up in Cobh, Co. Cork. I remember jumping off the old pier at high tide and going for a swim in the summer evenings... There are lots of colours going through the water, lilac/lavender shades that change to a soft blue in different light...just as the water does at different times of the day..
