Being on the deep ocean is a memorable experience. I've gone deep on the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. This painting is a memory from my fishing experiences.
Off the southern cost is a rich and unusual geologic formation. a huge ridge composed of mud and detritus miles off the coast. this ridge houses a rich and diverse colony of life forms.
I caught my first snapper in this strange world. A world that sports the most amazing colors, and unusual smells of salt, movement, mystery.
Magic, when I pulled onto the deck, the beautiful creature. He was emanating a glowing energy, that manifested into a sort of color. Vivid yellow streaking across his flanks and tail. It was the most alive thing i had witnessed. I waved and called to my friend glancing away. When I looked back something had changed, the brilliance had faded.
It is getting more and more challenging to find these delicious creatures.
