I really like this painting. I think it embodies the essential characteristics of Aberdeen City and Shire for the past 50 years or so. The oil industry has had a huge impact on Aberdeen. It produces billions of pounds of revenue each year and employs tens of thousands on people, even during the hard times. And when the oil price is high Aberdeen is a very wealthy city.
Unsurprisingly, Aberdeen’s harbour caters for a lot of oil & gas industry traffic, and that’s what this painting depicts.
16×12 inch prints of this painting are available for £10 mounted or £25 framed, plus postage at cost. If interested please get in touch using the “contact me” link above,
Of course, there is much more to Aberdeen than oil & gas. For example, we host the headquarters of First Group and Aberdeen Asset Management (now part of Standard Life Aberdeen). I do paint other aspects of Aberdeen, but as my first job on leaving university was as a geophysicist in oil & gas, it has a special attraction for me.
