For Verena...

"I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Ocean's voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne"

Thank you in advance for all views and comments. Lori

"I'm never going to be famous. My name will never be writ large on the roster of Those Who Do Things. I don't do any thing. Not one single thing. I used to bite my nails, but I don't even do that any more." - Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)

I think this would make a great Science Fiction book cover! In the meantime it looks great on my desktop. :)

Calmly the wearied seamen rest
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest,
For there is purity.
The earth has guilt, the earth has care,
Unquiet are its graves;
But peaceful sleep is ever there,
Beneath the dark blue waves.

by: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Lori, I really liked this piece of art. I could feel the heat of the day even as it somewhat blinds my view of the sea.

Looks like a combination of art deco waves, a colorful sonar reading, ripples in a pond, a rainbow, a mountain range, and so on. You should be considering a number of your images being used as illustrations in children's books. Kids love colors, movement, and patterns, and this one has all of that.
