Landscape painting of seagulls fishing in the sea by Henrietta Caledon.
There is a family of seagulls that live on my roof, and I became fascinated by them during the lockdown. They are so agile, and they represent ‘soaring above the drama’, ‘looking at things from a different angle’, adaptability, stamina, resourcefulness, and freedom.
The turquoise and blue colours of the sea almost swallow the gulls in the waves and their orange beaks are a wonderful contrast.
