    10 days at sea. . . you should be wanting to head for shore, shore 'nuff.

    I would recommend diminishing or at least varying the scale of the marks in the white caps, especially close to far.

    Interesting how you staged it. Looks a little like the boat is just added for something to put in, that it's all about the water. An idea might be to put us in or very close to the boat to experience the crashing of the wave or sculpt the ocean in a way that shows variety of angles and scale and dimension of how the water is moving. This may be how water actually looks to you at times, but is that moment THE moment. Does it tell your story or make your point for painting it. A musical analogy would be like noodling vs playing a song. Noodling is just moving the fingers listening for some cool sound to appear, whereas the song has usually defined shape, and if there are lyrics it also has a theme. Anyway, just a thought.

    Despite the critical tone of this comment, I have very much been enjoying your work and look forward to many more.
