      I do believe that sometimes the less you have in a painting can be more difficult to create what you would like it to be when finished :)
      I am so happy that you enjoyed both my painting and my Haiku~

  12. That's one bad storm out there! You have every right to be proud of this one and the Haiku, too. I would love to try Haiku but am sort of dragging my heels. I am not sure I'd be good at it.

    1. Thank you Latane! I say "if you're going to paint a storm at sea...go green!!!"
      I hope that you will try writing Haikus. Please don't worry about how good it is or isn't...just have fun and go with it :) I try to stick by the...

      lines...but you can't always make that work. I do hope you give it a try. I just started writing them and I'm hooked 💮

  14. We are boaters and your painting really is spectacular. I feel for anyone on that boat. :) The haiku is great- just enough understatement to let the painting speak for itself. Wishing you a fantastic weekend. Hugs-erika
