“…I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colours. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.
It is my favourite thing, I think, that I have ever seen.
Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel…”
I’ve been hanging on to this collage for a while and haven’t quite finished it (gotta paint the sides and finish off a bit of detailing) but it’s close enough…
I have it on pretty good authority that most ladylike mermaids keep a pigeon on their shoulder. It distracts the eye from one’s bosom, if one’s bosom is uncovered. However, this mermaid is particularly modest and keeps covered up. So her pigeon is more of fashion statement than a practical piece of adornment with a purpose. I’m not sure if the giant pink shell is a hat or just a thing she likes to carry around with her to match her outfit. Maybe it’s some kind of mermaid ninja throwing star or something.
Hope you and your weekend are weird and wonderful. Be Happy. Be You 🙂
I gotta say…I really love this photo. The water was gloriously rough that day – dark and troubled and wonderful. The sun kept trying to shine through the storm clouds but was fighting a losing battle. I love the ocean before a storm. It makes me feel at peace.
