Rising Seas - After the Deluge... New painting by Tatiana Iliina "The Tempest"

Russian artist
"The Tempest," by Tatiana Iliina, 24" x 36" acrylic on canvas

"...Boats. Work you, then.

Ant. Hang, cur! hang, you whoreson, insolent noise-maker. We are less afraid to be drowned than thou art.

Gon. I’ll warrant him for drowning; though the ship were no stronger than a nutshell, and as leaky as an unstanched 45 wench.

Boats. Lay her a-hold, a-hold! set her two courses off to sea again; lay her off.

Enter Mariners wet

Mariners. All lost! to prayers, to prayers! all lost!..."

-Wm. Shakespeare, The Tempest
