    Feels like a peacefully vintage day

    Loved the way the artist played with the ocean colors, blue and green. The purple shades are null or used very slightly on the rocks, however I see this painting and makes me feel like a peacefully vintage day with purple sunny rays.

    I find the tree on the left particularly interesting. It looks like it's reaching for heaven. Is it seeking eternity?
