I know that snorkeling with the fish down in Baja inspired my new painting, “Meet Me at the Guardian Waters”.
I’ve been learning to snorkel for the past 2 years. We snorkeled in the Sea of Cortez when we camped for a few days down in Baja this year. Although I’ve only been snorkeling a few times, I love being in the water and seeing underwater sea life. We’ve seen the most beautiful fish. Colorful ones, in lots of different sizes – some big angel fish and sting ray!
My fish in this painting although colorful are not as fancy as what I saw snorkeling. My painted fish are a bit trout-like.
I wanted to paint a family of fish with my aspen trees, with guardian trees looking over them.
Water is a big part of our life. We love being near it, in it or on it. Greg and I love taking the dogs down to the river and hanging out. Or taking the boat out to one of the gorgeous mountain lakes around Bend. We like hiking along the river or mt. biking on the river trail. I knew fish and water would make their way into one of my paintings soon and they did.
“Meet Me at the Guardian Waters” Print available in my Etsy Shop. Enjoy!
