I love water. I don’t know if this comes from growing up in the desert, or maybe being a swimmer, and a fisherman. I think that it is beautiful. This painting is about being underwater. I have used the cool colors to create the feeling of being deep in an aquatic environment.
This is a large painting. It is 4 feet tall by 8 feet wide. The scale of the piece helps one feel a part of the painting. It fills your field of vision when you stand close to it.
I used this painting as my postcard for my MFA exhibition.
