The Peaceful and the Stormy

These two paintings were both done in watercolors with a wet on wet technique and then dry brush for the details showing a tall sailing ship as it crosses the vast ocean waters in whatever the weather. I see this as a mirror for our lives, the calm with the chaotic, the gentle and the strong. We go forth each day regardless of the weather or circumstances endeavoring to persevere, exploring our world and hopefully making it a little better place. We learn to appreciate the good times so much more when we have stood strong and through the hard times.
