I’m always attracted to bodies of water. Maybe it comes from being raised near the ocean. I’m not keen on sunbathing, but I do like to go for a swim and people watch.

This is a painting of my goldfish. The amazing thing about this goldfish is that it was entirely black when I bought it. Months later over a period of a week or two it turned into gold! After I finished the painting I thought about how a dark background, fading to black would have made it look more traditional. But I like the lighter background, it’s more fun.
