Sharks in a Pool
If I ever own a pool It may take months to add water...
Yards and Yards of Pretty Blue Canvas! My aquarium...
Spotted Eagle Rays in the process of becoming...
On this day, the bottom of a pool is so hot, I can't walk on it barefoot and can't wear shoes on the freshly painted pool bottom, so I run - often. An old sail provides enough shade to keep the paint from cooking on contact.
This one is painted at the pool's shallow-end drop, as if it is heading off into the deep water.
I'm working with a very limited pallet of Caribbean (pool) blue, black and white. Pool paint is not exactly creamy stuff.
Hammerhead painting - open mouth. Oh, what beautiful teeth you have.
I painted two Spotted Eagle Rays, Baby Green Sea Turtles, French Angelfish, and three Hammerhead Sharks.
Just Add Water
1st day. People walked around the wildlife.
I'll admit, I was pleased to hear kids scream, "Shark!"
After days of painting sharks... Sitting on the veranda with my feet propped up, enjoying a cup of tea (read G&T), watching the clouds turn that beautiful sunset-pink... What do I see? A shark!
And the gods of sunsets laugh.
