A life raft drifts slowly across the empty expanse of the ocean. How many untold stories accompany the wind directed voyage of this raft?
Does someone lie in the bottom of the raft, hanging onto life, hoping against hope for rescue?
Is the raft empty, and if so - why?

Thanks to Evart for giving me the idea for making the water.

Evart - Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it. :)

Caesar - I am very appreciative of your comments on this painting. I resisted putting more stuff into this, and keeping it simple seems to have worked. Thank you very much.:)

Coops - Thank you very much. Most of the time, I start with the sky, and work my way down. This time, I did the water first, and as soon as I saw what I had, the picture of what I wanted, popped into my head, and it came together really fast.:)

Jasminek - I'm glad you liked it. Yes, the loneliness and uncertainty was a big factor in what I was trying to express. Thanks!:)

Jo - Thank you very much. If I come up with the right idea, I might try and tie another painting to this one.
Then again, sometimes it's best to quit while you are ahead.... LOL..

Excellent picture, has questions about.
The first, would be rewarding someone could tell what happened.:):)
The second, just might be released from his sling.:):)
Is just my opinion:):)

barnburner,
You have just captured my heart with "Lost At Sea." The emotional
impact that this painting evokes is powerful and the uncaring expanse
of cold blues pulls the viewer into the scene, into the water then into
that boat so that it's passenger would no longer be adrift and alone.
If he would only hold on ... just a short time more ... rescue, dry land
and comfort is surely on the horizon. Most touching and that water
is magnificent. Well painted! :)
