"Let me sail, let me sail, let the Orinoco flow..." from Orinoco Flow (Sail Away) by Enya
Sail Away was painted entirely by using a palette knife. The thick texture displays the ripples of paint as the sunlight ebbs and flows over the reflections of these colorful sails.

14"w x 11"h x 3/4d cradled museum quality panel
An original palette knife oil painting
I pre-mixed the colors into little piles. I was working from a photo, but am not showing the photo here because I changed it drastically for the painting. Artistic license and all that, you know?
The Orinoco river is one of South America’s longest and winds its way through Venezuela and Colombia. I don’t think the Orinoco goes to all the places Enya mentions in her song, but we could certainly picture ourselves in Fiji if we wanted.
There can only be one original painting and many thanks to Jean S. for giving this original oil painting a good home. If you would like to buy a print of Sail Away, please visit my print site at ImageKind.com. There are lots of sizes and options to explore there.
