The Cliché

One day in a gallery in Hawaii, a friend was admiring a VERY EXPENSIVE moonlit, see-through wave seascape. I cautioned him that he would do well not to spend good money on a painting with such a trite subject! But - if he just had to have it, it would be better that I paint one for him as a gift! So I did! And I called it "The Cliché", of course. Oh, and it's another poor photo!) Oil on linen

you are unbelievable clever with painting seascapes! Love this one very much! Have you seen my wave? Not the same but a little abstract and with a meaning about life.

Wow! this is like a shinning cool soothing dream...Excellent work...I love everything about it. so romantic...like Edgar Allen Poe is in there unseen or something.

it's a shame when one of Nature's more exquisite moments becomes trite. we just can't get enough of it. i like your limited palette
