The season of change is upon us and the glory of autumn draws near. Autumn saves the best colours in her palette for the month of October. This work began its life along Devils 4 Mile Road north of the village of Havelock. I have repainted it a couple of times and it gets a little better each time.

I painted this work a few years ago in Barbados. The setting is one of Barbado's most frequently photographed and visited locations. While it is a scenic location it also as a rather tragic story behind it. I was told that in the 19th century, the lady of the plantation, was riding in her buggy above the gap and her horse spooked and plunged over the edge and she died as a result of the fall.
Who would have thought that such tragedy could lie behind such a beautiful place.
The picture is part of the personal art collection of the owner of the estate.
