Sage and the Sea

20x16" Oil on Linen Panel

My husband.  I asked about 6 people what they thought would be a good title for this.  Five of them immediately said, "Old Man and the Sea!"  The other one said, "Earnest".  I thought about "Hemingway Thoughts," but settled on "Sage and the Sea."  Mike likes to give "sagely" advice, so I think he will like this title.  I painted this from a photograph taken while on a ferry boat traveling to Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  Mike served in the U.S. Navy for over twenty years, and has worked for the Navy since his retirement in the early 80's.  This painting will hang in the upcoming Quayside Gallery of Pensacola show themed "Light and Bright," beginning on March 26.
