Gorgeous stingray- when we lived in the Caribbean, there was an almost tame ray (named Sammie) that would swim with people- he was a little scary but AMAZING water companion :D
Thanks for bringing back that memory!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

i love this - and i love the idea of the stingray being the ghost of the sea. Once again your photography composition is wonderful - the way the light reflects off the paperweight is just beautiful!

Beautiful painting, as usual, and I think "the dreams of sea spirits" is one of the most beautiful phrases ever.
