Outward Bound on the Morning Tide

“A 21 -gun salute for your remarks about so-called modem art on page 41 of Sea History 51,” writesFrederickP.

Witte of Lakeland, Florida–one of the twentyodd people who wrote in with comments on this subject.

He continues: There is something therapeutic about walking along the seashore or better yet, being outward bound on the morning tide.

However, when that is not available to us, marine art has a way of stirring up the same feelings.

Art as therapy! Art as subordinate (ugh) to the experience itself! But we here regard that simple statement

Outward Bound on the Morning Tide as a forceful and moving affirmation the role of art in our lives.

Robert Frost, we feel, would have approved. So perhaps would Rembrandt,

and other artists in different media who celebrate

the experience of our lives, and seek the sacred in the ordinary.

 “There goes the budget! ” writes David Bunnell of New Windsor NY, having just commissioned anew painting by his favorite artist.

Not just the cost of the painting, but “I’ll have to move to get more wall space.”

And we liked the simple statement of Gene Olsen in Crescent City, California: “The subject has opened the door for history and made it exciting.”

And to round out this cheerful miscellany, our friend Harry L. Nelson, Jr. , writes us from Rolling Hills Estates, California:

Outward Bound on the Morning Tide  “Sea History gets better and better all the time. It’s full of little pearls and all you need to do is read closely to find them.”
