Lightnings storms, oceans, and moonlight

Did you ever put a message in a bottle as a kid? I wonder if anyone ever finds them? The whole idea of putting a message in a bottle must have originated out of somewhere but when? One of my daughter's caught an old coke bottle when we were fishing years ago. There wasn't anything in it but really yucky liquid. Any message there would have been about littering I'm sure.
The top paintings is a 4" x 6" acrylic painting done on sturdy canvas paper. It is a storm scene that has washed up the bottle.
The second is a calmer aceo (3.5" x 2.5") acrylic painting on matte board. Moonlight shining on the washed up bottle. Both are listed on Ebay here

I really like the little added extra of the bottle! Both are beautiful, but of course, the storm is my favorite!!

They are both wonderful pieces. OH and yes, I have thrown a bottle with a message in the waters when I was a young girl but don't call the littering police on me. LOL

These paintings remind me of one of my favorite movies... "Message in a bottle".
Great paintings.
