Illustration Friday "beneath"

As I was working on sketches for IF this weekend, I couldn't get away from the concept of "beneath the sea", until it finally turned into "beneath the pier".

  24. This is si sweet, I am teaching myself watercolours at the moment, and would love to try to emulate this little scene in watercolour, just for my own practice, would this be permissable? I would of course, credit you as the artist.

  25. I enjoyed "Beneath" and a couple others and used them to illustrate a poem from my morning prayer/meditation ...

    The Grace of Presence

    my boat (The Grace)
    my book written on the swells
    out beyond the shore

    I’m writing my own book
    the book of my life
    walking
    exploring
    wonder wandering
    out from God’s book of Love
    written
    being written
    increasingly
    in and out through my own heart
    mind
    spirit
    by feet, hands, head and heart
    as I’m graced
    with joy explored and shared

    each new pier
    each pillar planted beneath the water
    each new boating adventure
    taken slowly
    with oar
    and sail

    each
    a race
    a joy
    a discovery
    deepening
