"Makes no difference where you go every journey ends.
Each new landscape now you know.Is a stepping stone till you're safe at home."
This is the first part of the song, "Crayon Sun" by Michael Franks. I am a fan.
That is the idea here, a place of sanctuary. Most of the day these waterbirds are on the move, searching out the schools of baitfish that sustain them. Safe Harbor is the name a of a fish wholesaler in Mayport Florida and these happy birds know that there is plenty of scrap and plenty of abundance to knick a free one from the fisherman that dock here and unload the fresh catch. The two hulls are of smaller trawlers than the the big shrimp boats but still a great refuge in the harbor for our local winged friends to bask in the sun after a feast.
I am fascinated by the light that bounces off the water and dances on the hulls. I think I got the color and the composition true on this one! Hope you enjoy it.
This is a 36x48 inch oil on canvas, the wrap around style.
It is available for $7,500.00 US plus shipping and handling.
