Submerged

While submerged, water provides solace, solitude, healing, balance, and visual gifts that awe and inspire. As one who has spent many hours in chlorinated pools or natural bodies of water, representing the peace and magic that I experience there with oil on canvas seemed a natural endeavor.

For these paintings, I begin by taking underwater photos of subjects and reviewing the results to find the frames that have interesting compositions and lighting. Sometimes I will combine the results of multiple photos to achieve a desired effect or springboard to another idea to which I will shoot specifically.
