From one thing to another

When sketched this scene forty years ago Dominica's Roseau Bay Front was a sleepy sandy beach where fishermen sold their catch. That was yesterday. Just as Constable would be painting trucks rather than Haywains if he were to return to earth, my job as a painter is to record today.

Here then is today's Bay Front with cruise ship, tour buses, vendors and tourists.

How I miss yesterday! But in the words of Noel Coward, "The mood has gone to linger on would spoil it anyhow..."
