Tropical Morning, 9 x 12 oil
An eel, with his head out of the coral, is breathing. His open mouth widens, then water passes through and out the billowing flap behind his head. It reminds me of the octopus and the water constantly moving through his siphon. If they want to breathe, they cannot be still.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
