How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
Arthur C. Clarke
Oh, I do love beading. Love, love, love it. It’s like swimming in color. I just finished a commissioned mosaic for a wonderful client in the Pacific Northwest. This is an elaboration of an earlier 4″ piece, “I Dropped a Tear in the Ocean”. This one is 10″ in diameter and was such a complete joy to create that I could barely stand to send it away when it was finished.
For reference, I studied photos of Pacific Ocean waves breaking off the Oregon coast — such amazing colors and textures in the waves.
Here are some more quotations about this dear expanse:
Blue, green, grey, white, or black; smooth, ruffled, or mountainous; that ocean is not silent.
H. P. Lovecraft
But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean.
H. P. Lovecraft
Can ye fathom the ocean, dark and deep, where the mighty waves and the grandeur sweep?
Every drop in the ocean counts.
I don’t know if you can change things, but it’s a drop in the ocean.
A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.
I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you. ~Author Unknown
That is so very, very beautiful. I want it.
Thanks Em. It was a commission (sold). Prints and such will be available soon. I will post a comment when they are ready to purchase.
What a beautiful artwork! No wonder you longed to hold on to it for a while.
Thank you Carol and thanks for visiting. It gave me a chance to find your site.
