"Red Buoy" by Joe Sweeney Oil / Museum Board www.joesweeneyart.com/
Artist’s Statement: “…At nineteen I was a navigator on a destroyer escort in the North Atlantic. Sea duty for me was an existence in a world of gray; gray sky, gray sea, gray ships. Out of sight of land most of the time, we were cold, wet, and exhausted. I still like the sea what I didn’t like was “sea duty.” As a result of my Navy experience, I decided to stay ashore and become an artist, more specifically a landscape painter. But a painter who is never too far from the shore. Since then, I have painted coastline in order to deal with the boundary between land and water, the artist and the environment, and to express the sublime nature of the world surrounds us. And to convey the reality that this Earth is our home and the only one we will ever have…” — Artist Joe Sweeney (excerpted from http://www.joesweeneyart.com/about-artist_statement/)
