Oil on wood panel / This is my first oil painting. The subject is my wife and the location is where we were married 35 years ago next month. Later that day we attended a wedding where my daughter was the maid of honor.

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 14, 2014, 3:35 PM


Well I just checked off a bucket list item that's been hanging out there for over 25 years, and I got to do it with my daughter. We completed a swim crossing of The Hellespont from Europe to Asia in Turkey. It is a 4.5 km open water crossing involving very strong current. It is rich in history and legend. Names associated with this waterway include Xerxies, Alexander The Great, Hero & Leander, Jason and The Argonauts and Lord Byron who was the first documented person to have swum the channel. On the Asian shore is the site of Ancient Troy and on the European side, the WWI battle of Gallipoli was fought.
