Peace at the End of the Island

Haven’t even had what I would call a winter yet, and am already pondering the Island life. I think that’s because of all the holidays that kept me hopping for that last several weeks…Make that months. On Hatteras Island when I take the ferry over to Ocracoke Island, I always seem to look over to my right and watch Cape Hatteras Island as it come to the end, known as, “South Point.” before we enter Hatteras Inlet (the body of water where the ocean and sound meet.) I don’t know, it’s just so relaxing for me to watch that. Having had this on my mind it just came together for me as I created my painting as the New Year rang in.

The above artwork is a Digital Painting

  3. You certainly know how to title your pieces, Deb. My first reaction when viewing this dealt with peace and serenity. It’s so calm. Excellent work!

    • Well thank you very much, George! I thought the title suited it well since I sort of feel that way as I watch it go by.

      • I wanted to write “day”, but probably subconsiously I focused on the time here. 😉

        Good night Debbie 🙂

        • That’s okay…I always forget about our time difference anyway.
          You have a good day, whatever may be left of it.

  11. You captured the relaxing feel of your island in this painting so well. No wonder you want to get back there. The holidays kept me so busy too, this past week I finally grabbed time to unwind, catch up on some much needed sleep and now seem to be about back to a more regular schedual, not that my schedual is ever very regular but at least its almost back to what it usually is.
    It sounds like you’re having a mild winter like we are here too? I’m surprised at how warm it’s been and not any snow at all yet. I’d be thrilled if we can make it through the whole winter with no snow so i’m crossing my fingers on that. Big hugs, Nikki x

    • You have been busy Nikki!…For like the last 6-7 weeks or so…Knock it off, it will give you wrinkles….Lol, I guess those will come anyway. Really though, I’m glad you found some time to unwind, get some sleep, and just get back to normal.
      The winter has not been a winter at all. We had some snowfall yesterday, but it was more like a heavy flurry that didn’t stay on the ground too long…It has been cold these last few days though…in the 20’s. There is a big part of me that would like to build a snowman so I would have to hope for snow. But on the other hand snow can create such havoc that I can do without it.
      Hugs, Deb xx

  15. On second thoughts I think you should learn the boat stroke DEb 🙂
    Gosh I just wanna jump here… I guess the water temperture isn’t warm all year round 🙂

    • You could not have possible enjoyed your visit here and much as I have enjoyed you visiting! It’s been wonderful talking with you trough these posts.
      I am very glad you’ve enjoyed all the paintings you viewed today.
      The boat stroke?…You mean the back stroke? I can do that, and now that I look at the mountain it does look so far a way that I couldn’t do it. But as you know, if you read some of the other comments, Binky is going to rocket me over there…Lol
      Thanks for the visit today, Tracy!
      Love and Hugs,
      Deb xx
