I.F - Phenomenon

Sailing to Brittany - Acrylic 10" x 10"

This painting was done for a health and medical magazine to illustrate an essay about dying. The phenomenon of passing from this world to the next is inevitable, yet still unknown. I think that is why it conjures such deep feelings among people.  In the story the author described the passing of a loved one and how she imagined a peaceful sail into the sunset toward a favorite place. I wanted to convey that sense of peace as well as add a bit of a fantasy or surreal touch to it. Looking back, I still think it is a successful piece.

it feels kinda soft to me i mean it's like i can feel what i can see and sometimes i also imagine that certain things can take off with me for examle when lying in my bed or on the carpet and i can see these colors on the back of my closed eyelids too
