Floating Near The Water

For just before he came to the river side, she had stept down into the cool clear water;  and her shawl and her petticoat floated off her, and the green water weeds floated round her sides, and the white water lilies floated round her head, and the fairies of the stream came up from the bottom and bore her away and down upon their arms;  for she was the Queen of them all;  and perhaps of more besides.
  ~Charles Kingsley (Art by Warwick Goble)

I have been spending these Winter days in the quiet of Seawashed Studio sketching and painting with pale washes of watercolor Roses and Sea Poetry.  I have hand written in watercolor my own words from the many blog posts over these ten years about this quiet life washed by the sea.  I am calling it Sea Poetry.  I have included many of my favorite bits of poetry by Poets of old that have become so much a part of my blog language.  These are now available in my shop  Seawashed  .  I hope you will enjoy them as tiny whispers of the sea.
