Painting water and the sea.
Yesterday I met someone who told me he can see that I am a calm person. He sees it in my paintings.That was quite a compliment and I could still hear my late mother's words: ‘Whenever you get into trouble, whenever you get into a crisis or an emergency, become the calmest person in the room and you’ll be able to figure your way out of it.’
The sea, foam on the beach.
How I long for the sea now!!
"Sometimes we are lucky enough to know that our lives have been changed, to discard the old, embrace the new, and run headlong down an immutable course. It happened to me ... on that summer’s day, when my eyes were opened to the sea."
— Jacques Yves Cousteau, Oceanographer
