Untitled and unfinished

I have really struggled with this challenge. In the end, I decided that I would paint, and then quilt a seascape. The painting didn't go so well. My last attempt looked perfect while it was wet but faded into nothing as it dried. The sailboat was added in an effort to bring it to life. And then I realized that there is too much wind in the sails for such a quiet sea. Perhaps it's a ghost ship, and sails along without benefit of wind.

Certainly not one of my best efforts, but I plan to persevere with it and see what happens.
