The great barrier reef is an underwater jungle truly out of this world. Spending a Sunday snorkeling along its shallow reefs was breath taking; and inspired a new painting!
Endless numbers of coral butterfly surrounded us on the reef. Elegant, slim and colourful; these fish were like painted CDs navigating between rocks and coral. JUST STUNNING. We were also graced by the presence of a 1 meter long green sea turtle, he cruised along intermittently stealing mouthfuls of sea weed along the ocean floor. There are literally not enough adjectives for this post. Having art inspired by your life experiences is a huge blessing, and I think for this painting adds real authenticity to its beauty.
