Safe Haven

Safe Haven – Price Available on Request


Step into my enchanting world of “Safe Haven,” an oil painting that speaks to your soul, beckoning  to find solace amidst the awe-inspiring forces and power of the ocean. Imagine yourself standing, gazing at the magnificence of the cave where crystal-clear waters flow gently through its heart. This painting captures the essence of seeking refuge and feeling safe in the embrace of nature’s wonders.

My inspiration for this artwork came from a memorable visit to the captivating Ailwee Cave in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare. Caves have always held a magical allure for me, and this particular sea cave, also known as a littoral cave, carries an irresistible charm. As we wander through this subterranean sanctuary, I can’t help but wonder about the hidden inhabitants of this mystical realm—who might call this place home?

Outside the cave, the ocean’s relentless waves crash against the rugged rocks, reminding us of the raw power that surrounds this serene hideaway. The cave stands strong as a safe haven, providing us with a sense of security and protection from the outside world.

The painting showcases the erosion process at play, sculpting the cave’s interior over time. It’s a  reminder of the enduring harmony between the earth and sea, creating wonders like this safe haven of tranquility—a place one could lose yourself in, escaping from the troubles of everyday life.
