Ghost ship series: Chasing the light: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
I have to comment on one physical characteristic of life forms that is being used in this image called phototropism. Phototropism is an orientation of a plant or other organism in response to light, either toward the source of light (positive phototropism) or away from it (negative phototropism). Most plants show signs of positive phototropism. So does this pirate vessel navigating towards diffused sunbeams of an oceanic sunset. It seems that the twisted trees stem from the hulls and the decks of the ship making it one living organism. Living... Does not it strike you as oxymoronic, a phantom ship - a dead ship, really - chasing the light with all her might so that she becomes capable of such a miraculous transformation into a living entity? Strangely enough, there’s much serenity in the ocean trying to find a compromise between the frenzy of the elements and the quiet of a sunset. Once again, the magnetic quality of the light dominates the marine landscape.

Totally awesome as is all of your work George. You're the best surrealist I've ever seen!

I'm leaning toward a giclee art print of the original "Full Moon Rising". I especially like the durability as well as the beauty of giclee. A number of years back, I was able to purchase the original cover art for my first two books.

I realy liked the way your mind travelled mine through this picture! So I decided to travel with this boat to the open sea of my dreams! When suddenly the crew stoped the ship by the sore and I saw them moving silently underneath the fore of the ship!

Exceptionally Enchanting Imagery. This is of course beyond the norm in beautiful night scape colors and seems to offer hope amidst moments of desperation, as the ship manages to navigate away from imminent peril.
