by the sea.

"the storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee, asleep in the arms of the slow swinging seas." kipling

one of my favorite quotes and perfect for decorating with paintings of the sea. i saw an interior once (of course now i can't remember where) and above the couch was nothing but paintings of the sea. all shapes, sizes, styles and from thrift stores to perhaps well known artists. but nothing else in the paintings but the ocean. just perfect.

so on this stormy, grey day on cape cod, i'm lucky to be able to drive to many vantage points and take in the ocean. i would love to incorporate a collection in my home like i described above. i'll be on the lookout now and start my collecting. enjoy this tuesday, we are closer to thanksgiving day, yeah! :)
