I think for many people Lindisfarne is a perfect example of a special place, from the strange feeling of driving into the sea as you cross the causeway to the peace of Holy Island Bay with its castle, priory and upturned boats.
I first came here in the company of a lovely man from Seaton Delaval who was shocked to find I'd never been. I hope this painting - one of my favourite views - goes someway to expressing my thanks.
This painting forms part of Places of Pilgrimage - an exhibition of paintings and prints at Southwell Minster: Preview at 7pm on Friday 11th September and open daily until Sunday 11th October.
