We pulled away from Freeport Harbor today and are sailing toward Barcelona. The ocean is incredible. The blue water stretches out indefinitely and makes me realize how small any vessel, even one holding a thousand people, seems in the great expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. This experience is already expanding my view of the world, stretching my comprehension of the sheer size of this planet. Again, I feel incredibly fortunate and excited.
While in port, I finished this painting inspired by the deep turquoise and green waters of the Bahamas. I enjoyed our time there and, presently, am looking ahead at the even deeper blue water of the Atlantic with a great deal of optimism and wonder.
