The visual start for this painting was the image of the white sails on a small boat against the Prussia blue of the sea. The addition colours the flotsam and jetsam of items on deck. The title books and Beaujolais are two important items to have aboard. This piece of work went through lots of changes, layers of colours, scrapping back, before new ideas surfaced. It is acrylic on canvas, with sand added and collage.

Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: "My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on 'the essence of place' through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates."
