I have always lived on the West coast, near the ocean. I had a short stint in Colorado years ago and I can't believe how "landlocked" I felt and how much I missed the ocean. I also missed the rain of Seattle so I used to dream about rain.
Oh .... I think our dreams met somewhere in the depth .... I've painted sea floor shells and algae yesterday .... Of course Your talent and style exclude any comparison between us ..... Beautiful painting !
