By the Sea

...all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
~John Masefield

Wonderful paintings of sea scenes this week.

Particularly enjoyed Cliff, In Finskom Bay, and Four-Masted Barque.

But whenever I looked at What Freedom!, I couldn't help but expect the wave to take them away. ;-)
