This sombre and moody painting features haaf netters on the Solway Firth at the small village of Port Carlisle. Haaf netting may date back thousands of years to the introduction by Viking invaders, 'haaf' being the Norse word for channel (or sea).

As an artist I can move things around to suit, so although haaf netting is not necessarily carried out at the exact location depicted, it offered me a focal point for my painting and depicts a totally unique subject of local interest

Although still my usual dramatic sky, this painting is much more subdued than my usual offerings so I have no idea how it might be received. But I hope it is to someones liking
