Sea Day - by Leslie

This may look like a painting of a small, silver sugar bowl and while that is true, it is also a painting of the lido deck of the MS Holiday. I cruised on the Holiday back in May. She is a small ship and is being sold to a Spanish cruise line in about a month. The sugar bowl is sitting on a chest which holds life jackets. In the reflection you can see the Gulf of Mexico and me, taking the picture. I once read that you should never paint anything in reflections that you can't see in the rest of the painting. This seems so silly to me. The reflections offer an opportunity to see the world in a different way. How else can a painting of a sugar bowl bring forth memories of warm Caribbean breezes and salt air.
