The agitated Mediterranean sea at dawn. I know, the sky looks unreal, but believe me, that's what it looked like!

So dramatic...love the "agitated" sea! Well done, Liza.

Agitated is such a great adjective! It describes this!

Hi Liza,

You are making me ache for a visit to the ocean. I know it would be cold right now in Canada, but oh boy I'd love to see this view. Just gorgeous.

Spain is really a great country. Its beautiful nature, arquitecture, etc. can mesmerize at first sight.
It's great opportunity for artist to visit Spain and then create such stuuning paintings. Landscape,
cityscape, seascape – all they are brilliant! It's a pleasure to see them displayed on your website.

It's music Liza. You've caught it - one never tires of looking at the ocean.

Dear Kelley,

Perhaps I chose a word that doesn't really fit. My english lacks a few words, so I often just guess what might be right. But I am pleased that you like it. Thanks!

Hi Pam,
Thank you - pleased you like the word I chose for it. (see above)

Hi Barbara,

I know what you mean. I am soo happy having this opportunity to spend a longer time by the sea, as I always miss it, too. And it's the first time I get to paint it, which is great!

Liza Hirst said...

Thank you very much, fineart. How right you are! It's a treat!

Hi Marcia,

You said that so nicely! Thank you!
And yes, I can hardly tear myself away when watching the waves. One might think it could get boring, as they just keep rolling endlessly, but it is fascinating!
