The good folks at Illustration Friday offer up breezy for this week's theme. When I took this photograph it was decidedly a windy day. Storm clouds were scudding across the gray sky like a heavily laden collier hugging the shore for safety while in search of safe haven. It's four bells of the First Dog Watch!

Thanks, Sarah ... but, if you scroll back through even this past week, you'll find two more. They're not as large as this one and I don't do a lot of landscapes but that's slowly beginning to change.

Thanks for dropping by Indi, it's been a while I think. Sorry that I was out of tea ... earlier, I added a little rum to mine and got carried away. You know how we old sailors can be. :)

Since the new year began, I continue to be influenced by a handful of blogs and artists where the work is dark and moody. It's affecting my own work and comments like yours tell me this might not be a bad thing. :)

Thank you so much. I'm in one of those phases where I'm moving radically between bodies of work and playfulness. That usually means doing some different things with different filters.

This is beautiful and the bright line offers much promise.

I sense the breeze and good solitude - a place to think and imagine our place in the universe.

How large are your real files?

Thanks for these kind words. I work small and my normal file size is 400 X 400 pixels - not quite 4" square if I print them out. This piece is 720 X 400.
