Quiet Boat

“Forgiveness is the economy of the heart.…forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.”
– Hannah More

Quiet Boat

4″ x 6″ Acrylic on Canvas

I painted this, then kinda lost interest in it when I got to the water.  I suppose I could have gone on to add reflections, and the like, but I thought not.  🙂

I opted to insert a little troll, that I did on watercolor paper.  No, I didn’t attach it permanently, because I still may do more on the painting.

I hope I at least gave you a laugh this morning!  🙂

About Hannah More

English writer and philanthropist Hannah More, one of the most influential women of her time, is seen as a proto-feminist because she argued for true education for women. She was born near Bristol in 1745. When her long engagement to a local landowner ended badly, he gave her a yearly stipend in apology, which allowed her the freedom to move to London and write plays. She later shifted to philanthropic work and writing popular religious tracts. She died in 1833.

    Wish I looked that good in a two-piece! 🙂 Too bad she isn’t small enough to stand on the prow of the boat. Yes, you gave me a chuckle this morning. I’ll remember this image.

      Thanks, Leslie. I think it’s good to remember to have fun. There still could be a harem of trolls playing in and around that boat. I still own acrylic paint. **big wide toothy grin**
