a day well spent

12 x 16, oil on canvas
"Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the things you did,
so throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore.
Dream.
Discover."
Mark Twain

That's so beautiful! I like the poem with it too. And guess what? Paul McCartney is performing here in Cincinnati tomorrow night. Funny you should mention him. It's a gorgeous painting. I like the silvery feeling to the water and how it is carried through the piece, just like it feels when you are really on the water at sunrise or sunset. Great job!

That orange horizon line is striking. Well done, Faye.
