Are you one of those people where being anywhere close to the ocean just seems to calm you down?  I am.  Just the thought of heading out to the coast (or the shore, as we native New Englanders like to say) evokes an overall feeling of vacation.  Aaagghh.  It's one of those 5 senses things - the smell of the air, the beautiful views, the sound of the waves crashing and seagulls cawing, the salt you can taste when the wind whips around, the sand in between your toes.  You know how it is!  It doesn't even matter what the weather is - stormy, sunny, somewhere in between...the sea always has this way of making me happy and warm inside!  I discovered these prints by Frances Seward over the weekend and they seem to do the same thing.  I am thinking of getting a couple for my office - they're absolutely gorgeous!

I love how there is this sort of natural base, but an almost fantastical feeling as least to me!  I guess that is the beauty of art - it is completely open to your own interpretation.   

Don't you just want one of each?  Hope you are having a lovely Monday morning!


  1. Very much a fan of the ocean, I love these pieces you found... abstract yet very clearly a gorgeous view.

    Wishing you a wonderful new week!

  2. These are charming - I absolutely have to be close to either a beach or harbour - there's nothing like a large body of water for beauty! Happy monday to you too!

  3. The one with the moon is simply gorgeous!

  4. Oh yeah I know what you mean. :) These are beautiful!

  5. These are gorgeous! I'd put up a line of them in my bathroom.
