    It’s an interesting result, isn’t it? Very suggestive of a sailing vessel with the vertical and diagonal lines … to me at least. There could even be a flag up the mast too me thinks. Very nice, Ruth.

  • Hey there Bernd! Thank you very much. Not at all what I had in mind but great to hear your interpretation of it. I’d say that this one is very emotional, born out of frustration I think. I wasn’t sure where I was going with it but I knew that there was something that I liked about it so I continued on. Ah…..the trials and tribulations of being an artist. LOL!

    Stunning artwork, Ruthie !!! I agree with Bernd re: the lines and the appearance of historic sailing vessels, thus the title fits superbly, especially with the deep reds/browns representing rocks around the coastline !!

  • Hi Phil! Thank you so much for your kind comment. Blessings to you and your family!
