This was a challenge to myself to create a large piece. The composition changed as I began working on the piece.

I started with the boats..I adore making them and have become obsessed with them.

Next came the water and waves. It was quite challenging to get it right. I am not sure I am there yet but will make more in the future.

Finally the composition with the boats, birds and tiny globe and a top coat of wax on the waves.
