Sea Escape I -27x40
Painting - Oil On Canvas
In the summer of 2005 I began The Sea eScape Series as two completely separate paintings. The paintings were inspired first by a snorkeling trip to Key Largo with my family.
We took several underwater photographs. One of the pictures my husband took inspired me to paint "Sea eScape II". I was intrigued by the way the fish were swimming away from the viewer. The Blue Tang fish were so blue and the bubbles created an interesting pattern. I saw how one fish stood out from the rest, the Sergeant Major, who simply was not in school with the Blue Tang. I called that one "Sea eScape II - Wayward Fish".
"Sea eScape I - Color Queens" was inspired by a photograph that I took of the underwater landscape and the interesting patterns created by the light reflecting off the coral. When I placed the paintings side by side, I realized that they could connect so I transformed them into a diptych. I really enjoyed working with the paint and trying to remember the beautiful colors that I had seen which did not did not translate well in the photographs that we had taken.
