            I borrowed today’s painting title from a great poem by John Masefield, called  Sea Fever It just seemed to match the mood of this painting. It starts with such a lyrical phrase: “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky”.
Imagine the feel of the wind and the salty spray, and the sounds of the gulls crying and the waves crashing on the rocks.  As you look out over the water, you see all the colors of the fading sun.
Masefield’s  poem ends with a wish for: “…And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.”
            Wishing you a quiet sleep and sweet dreams.
