It reminds me of Turner's paintings.

You're kidding me. How on earth did you get a ship like that from a fractal generator?

I have more than 30 in the gallery and some are much more realistic, this is old stuff.

:-) Seems there is something in this picture that attracts people and most of them cannot explain what exactly. I like your interpretation so far. :-)

I can see why, I think it would be beautiful on canvas too. It reminds me of a photo that came out of a very old antique home that is rich with dark wood and creaky floors. I love it.

This one is printed and stands absolutely correct! On 7th of July it will be shown:-) Tomorrow I'll get my bigger fractals framed, this one is printed a bit bigger than A4 for the moment as well as the other realistic ships.

Thanks a lot, well I like a lot your comment and yes I love to invent stories too for my art like for "Altamira" [link] or the "Fighting Temeraire" [link] yet I don't have time for everything as my exhibition is coming. Yet I have 3 more stories almost prepared, only to make the corresponding works left:-) So soon there will be more stories.

The Ship of Souls
The Ship of Souls

The lighthouse breaks the haze,
In an eerie nightly mist,
Sat alone upon the harbor,
A ghostly child awaits his ship,

Dressed in shorts and cap,
A teddybear in his embrace,
Gazing blankly over oceans,
Sat upon an old suitcase,

His cries haunt the darkness,
Echoing beyond the afterlife,
He awaits the ship of souls,
To carry him to heavens light,

And there upon horizon's,
A ghostly vessel rides the sky,
Sounding horns played by angels,
Sent to take the souls on high,

Shining bright amidst the black,
Slowly descending into fall,
Drops anchor by the harbor,
"All aboard" the Captain calls,

The touching hands of angels,
Gently lift him in there grip,
He says farewell to the world,
Then sails away into the mist.
