home scars

My most recent series of paintings, 12.7cm (5 inch) square each, oil on board.

 detail: central piece

These were based on photographs I took at the Sands O' Wright beach of limpet rings left on the rocks. Their suction marks are referred to as home scars as they return to the same spot before the tide ebbs. Each ring is unique to a limpet, like a fingerprint.
