(240) Sailing Lesson
12 x 16, oil
"We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things...but there are times when we
stop.
We
sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory.
We listen...and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper"...James Carroll

Oh, wow! Incredibly life-like photo. I feel like I'm standing across from them, watching them move around and make their preparations. I love the reflection in the water.
