Black Sea at Night

Black Sea at night, a painting by Ivan Aivazovsky (1879). I think it could make a great cover image for my thriller/mystery set in the Black Sea. I’m about half way through writing it. A great mood in this painting. Aivazonvsky was a master of moods.

  3. The sea has not changed since his times, at least in Odessa. Thank you for bringing up a memory!
