the golden horn

the golden horn sanford robinson gifford



the murmur of evening water
holding and shaping
the soft edges

the slow moving air

cinnamon speckled
whisperings of cloth and wood

The Golden Horn is one of my favourite places in the world and your words are so appropriate steven.

Your words are perfect for this painting; soft and mellow.

"..the murmur of evening water...
...whisperings of cloth and wood.." both perfect lines to open and close a great musing like this... i liked the new header photo... it's something very keen and yet so soothing.(:

Good day.

What a remarkable painting: all that water and sky rendered in warm yellows and browns without a hint of blue or green. To that scene you add a soundtrack and a tactile dimension. A lovely sojourn.

Soft and smooth, like glass. I'm going to send you a piece of music, Steven.

Romantic words and a romantic picture, how I wish I could immerse myself in the real thing.
