acrylic on canvas, 20x24 inches
"MY heart to thee an answer makes,
O long, slow whisper of the sea,
Whose charm of mournful music wakes
A dream, a memory.

Touched hands, met lips, and soft fair speech--
Soul's silence to the past replies,
When love and hope illumined each,
Within a girl's blue eyes."

William Stanley Braithwaite
People who see this painting are often
reminded by the Edgar Allan Poe poem
Annabel Lee, But in reality I was probably
inspired by an old Cure song from the Faith
The Long Slow Whisper
of the Sea
