Between 1796 and 1802 he produced a vast number of book illustrations and color prints, perhaps as many as 30,000, that drew their inspiration from the traditions, legends, and lives of the Japanese people.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Gazing into the horizon, Before the deep blue sea. Breathing in the air, Salt mist all around. Gazing into the sunlight As it glistens on the sea. Sparkles of sunlight Dancing all around. The dark blue sky Hovers above the water; A never- ending sight Ocean stretching beyond. Water splashes around As waves abound. Water comes and goes With secrets unknown. The sound of the ocean waves, the roar of the sea, Draws me deep within To where I cannot see. Ocean waves Majestic and free, Soaring to the sky From the deep blue sea. http://mindbodythoughts.blogspot.com/2011/07/ocean-waves-poem.html Relaxing Ocean Waves by Don Shetterly
