Come Swim with Me

By Hazel Holland

I painted this impressionistic watercolor as I thought about what it might be like to live among the colorful plants and sea life in a coral reef.  The octopus kind of happened by accident because his wavy arms (or are they legs?) seemed to fit with the flow of the water and graceful movement of the surrounding sea life environment.  But I may have gotten carried away just a bit with the seaweed thing!

Knowing ahead of time that we were going to be getting some hot weather today... supposed to be 102 and even 110 in some places around here, I thought I would paint a scene of life in a cooler place.♥
