The Pacific: The Sea

Above are details of below,
The full Courbet,
The full Carmel,
Or Balbec waters,
At Redondo?

Acrylic on canvas, 3-5 August 2007, 7x14 inches.

But before all this I had drawn back my own curtains, impatient to know what Sea it was that was playing that morning by the shore, like a Nereid. For none of those Seas ever stayed with us longer than a day. The next day there would be another, which sometimes resembled its predecessor. But I never saw the same one twice.

~Place-names: The Place, À la recherche du temps perdu, Marcel Proust, Volume I, 1919, (Moncrieff-Kilmartin), page 757.

Acrylic on canvas, (1 through 5), 2-7 August 2007, 7x14 inches.

Work in Progress

By the shores of Gitche Gumee,
By the shining Big-Sea-Water,
Stood the wigwam of Nokomis,
Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis.
Dark behind it rose the forest,
Rose the black and gloomy pine-trees,
Rose the firs with cones upon them;
Bright before it beat the water,
Beat the clear and sunny water,
Beat the shining Big-Sea-Water.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Song of Hiawatha, 1855.
