Out by West Cork we drove down laneways on a remote headland 
to where the fields ran down to a landfall
poised from a great height over the roaring Atlantic, the land blazed with midsummer sunlight, heat 
glaring up, the waves thundering spray below.

Malta Nocturne, 2000
Oil on canvas
20 x 16 ins
Private Collection 
At night you felt the blaze of heat fade away, 
looking out on the Libyan sea from a burnt out coast,
 knowing Africa lay out there somewhere, a heat mirage on the horizon.
