Sailor’s Delight

CONUS MARMOREUS

I once again rendered marble comes in “Sailor’s Delight”, but this time against the soft reflective background of a sunset which appears to be “melting” onto the surface of the dark water. The scene brought to mind the old nautical adage; “…red sky at night, sailor’s delight.” The repetitive dark and light patterns on the tumbling shells made a striking contrast to that confetti like end-of-day celebration!
