"The sea contains treasures unimagined.
At sunset, not only the sea herself shimmers like a million precious gems,
but she has yielded a dancing glass Japanese float, a precious 'sea jewel'
to be claimed by a keen eyed beachcomber like you."
Artist comment: "This small oil painting on stretched canvas, is indeed a small jewel,
although it is the glass fishing float in the forground that gives it that
title. The setting is from my memory of the ocean on the Pacific coastline.
The waves are accurately depicted, because I have studied and painted them
for over thirty years. I enjoy, thoroughly, painting sunsets, for
that allows me to dip into the paintbox for as many hot and/or pastel colors
that I can get away with. (Who is going to tell me otherwise?), for
I have seen glorious sunsets so incredibly beautiful, it was as though
Heaven Itself had painted them."
