Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the front

The old man and his middle-aged daughter gazed across the water, watching the birds disturb the mirror-like surface. They had come to get away from his house, littered with paper and crumbs since his wife, her mother, had passed away.
A few metres away, by the shore, a grey-bearded man sat on a directors' chair, his back to his curtained van and fishing rod in his hand. To the father, the man was catching his dinner and soaking up the last of the autumn sun. But his daughter wrote another tale in her head. She saw a man who had no home, but a mattress in his old work van. She wondered where his family were. Around him, his lures lined up on a log, his pots and pans neatly stacked, hinted at an organised mind: a place for everything and everything in its place.
Her father, in his maddening pointless activity and disarray, was rudderless. Adrift.
