Crossing the English Channel

Do you know what I really really hate? I hate it when people don't give references for their original art work but that is what I'm going to do here because I've searched and searched and searched for the name, artist and date of this painting. So sorry, I'm breaking one of my cardinal rules.


The side note next to this picture says this ship is crossing the English Channel from France to England. When I first saw it I thought they were coming to America. My favorite part of the picture is the lady in the white dress reading with mayhem all around her. He husband or male escort is even looking green around the gills.


The artist does a lot to show the sea sick motion in the picture. The main ship mast is at a 20 to 30 degree angle to the right and the people in the picture are leaning to the left almost 30 degrees to compensate and keep their balance.



The ladies behind our heroine in a white dress and bright red shaw are visibly distressed. Don't you wonder what she is reading. I was wondering if she was reading scriptures about trusting God when every thing is crazy around her or perhaps a love story has gripped her heart and she can't put it down.



Water Lilies
Date: 1908




Simply enjoy!

Graj OnlineHi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
