Illustration Friday: Green -

"Sailors Confront The Green Sea"
digital collage by Mick Mather
To my brothers who have sailed across any large body of water, a dedication with tonight's theme, green, at Illustration Friday. Having spent my fair share of time upon rough and treacherous waters, a darkening sky and a pea green sea can test the metal of the best of men, especially when their waves and stinging spray hurdle the gunwales. Believe me when I tell you that there are few frights as powerful as being tossed by an angry, uncaring and unforgiving sea. To the captain brave and every adventuresome tar, a pint of rum for passing the test and Davy Jones keeps the rest!

Thanks so much. Like you, I often surf the internet for images that inspire me. This piece is the result of at least three different images that hit me between the eyes.
