"Why Worry?"

The beach is Bamburgh Beach, Northumberland, England.  I painted it to Dire Straits' album Brothers in Arms, not realizing Mark and David Knopfler grew up in Northumberland, so this would've been a beach they knew as children.  The scene just seemed to demand that particular music.  There is perhaps an essence of the Northumberland coast inherent in the Knopfler brothers' music.  I like to think that's true . . .
