This started as an abstracted landscape. But I botched it. I kept going, and this is the result. Passable. There are some redeeming qualities in the sky. Blooms and soft areas.

 

For Those In Peril On The Sea
Eternal Father strong to save
Whose arm has bound the restless wave
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
It’s own appointed limits keep
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in Peril on the sea
Oh Christ whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word
Who walkest on the foamy deep
And how amidst the storm did sleep
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in Peril on the sea
Eternal Father strong to save 
Whose arm has bound the restless wave, 
Who bids the mighty ocean deep 
It’s own appointed limits keep, 
O hear us when we cry to Thee 
For those in Peril on the sea
Oh Christ, the Lord of hill and plain, 
O’er which our traffic runs amain. 
By mountain pass or valley low, 
Wherever, Lord our brethren go, 
Protect them by Thy guarding hand 
From every peril on the land
O Spirit, whom the Father sent 
To spread abroad the firmament. 
Oh wind of heaven, by Thy might 
Save all who dare the eagle’s flight. 
And keep them by thy watchful care 
From every peril in the air
O Trinity of love and power, 
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour.
From rock and tempest, fire, and foe 
Protect them wheresoe’er they go. 
That evermore shall rise to Thee, 
Glad praise from air and land and sea

When I laid down the yellow, I meant for it to resemble multiple blooms. I left out details, such as outlining each one. I added a center, to hint at one front facing bloom. But I am not sure it reads the way I intended. Oh well, I am still happy with it. Even with having to fix a flub of the wet center bleeding too much,

I will actually have the last few days of the challenge uninterrupted! Whew! Ideas for paintings have popped into my head at odd times. When I am falling asleep, behind the wheel, waiting in line. I just have not had time to do a complicated piece. Bummer.

I can honestly say that after doing a 100 day challenge, 30 days goes by really fast. Ha ha! Triple dog dare ya’!
