Come Sail Away by AnnMarieBone Come Sail Away by AnnMarieBone
Acrylic on Canvas 20x30inches


Come Sail Away by Styx

I'm sailing away
Set an open course for the Virgin Sea
'Cause I've got to be free
Free to face the life that's ahead of me

On board, I'm the captain
So climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had

We lived happily forever
So the story goes
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on




Nice to get back to doing a landscape after working on a portrait commission for two weeks. Hope you like it!

Thank you in advance to anyone kind enough to comment or add this to their favourites. A big, special thank you to all my faithful watchers who seem to support all my efforts and give me real motivation!

This is so pretty I love how bright and vivid the colors are, and how much they contrast one another. It's rare to see a sunset get this vivid out in the city where I grew up. I always loved when I could see one like this. :)

I love that song (I note that you left out the very end lyrics. Heheh.) and I really love the strong, beautiful colors of your sunset. I also love the textures of the clouds. Very well done!
