Saltwater Cure, 8x6 Oil on Canvas Panel, Seascape Painting of Stormy Seas



"The cure for anything is saltwater – sweat, tears, or the sea."
-  Isak Dinesen

The above quote is the inspiration for the title of this one. I love to see stormy seas; there is a lot of excitement and action going on. I'm just glad I'm not out on a ship in it. I have been to sea twice; once, there were 25-foot seas and a broken engine on the ship (that was when I was working and I was on the job); the second time I was on a cruise ship in a big storm. There aren't enough crackers in the world to fight that kind of seasickness. On those trips the cure for me was not saltwater, it was stepping onto terra firma.
