I come from the middle of the last century (born in 1941), and still paint the sea the old-fashioned way. Miles and miles of it, from the home shore to the horizon.
It is not just a saying that in your future you meet your past. In his life a person will meet his past quite often. Look at the huge collages recycled from my own pictures and created in different techniques. This is my work today. Variety is fun.
