These deep blue “by-the-wind sailors” stranded in great numbers on our beaches several times this summer.  This provided several opportunities to take reference photos of these jellyfish-like creatures.  In this painting the low evening sun lights up their little sails and casts light shadows on the sand.  For more information on Velella Velella, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velella.
