I’m trying something new for me with this tulip, a little fantasy and surrealism. It’s always fun to do something a bit different. I felt this poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson fit the mood of the painting rather well.

Crossing the Bar

by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full of sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar. ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)
