Since this is my second blog page, it generally takes me longer (sometimes very long) to reply to your comments, but I do read and love them!

© Oil, 24 x 30, Tsunami. St.Germain

Overwhelming overpowering waves
wiping villages away from the map
- force of life
- force of death

my cousin was supposed to be there
on her honeymoon,
last minute decided to go to Egypt
that week I painted this, 
being a Sunday painter*

*Referring to my blog post Sunday painter on my main blog.
