Painting and photography

The strange relationship between painting and photography: a source of mystery and confusion. This photo was taken by me in the late 1950s on an old Box Brownie camera.  There was almost no settlement then; only our house and one other along the foreshore.  I wanted to paint this image and started with a quick acrylic sketch.  But it turned into something else altogether.  The slightly choppy waters now became the marker of a storm.  The still, slightly hazy sky to the north turned into wild storm clouds.  Was this a body-memory of how I felt that day, far out on the river in the old wooden boat with my father?Storm from the north detail
