I am imagining an entire episode of The X-Files based on this picture. Marvelous.

I used to be a SCUBA diver. Don't know how you came up with this idea, or if you're a diver yourself, but you sure caught the eeriness and flow of being underwater; and especially arresting is the inky blackness of the surround. You have to go deep (over 100 ft. on a cloudy day) to get that dark, and the only time I did that came vividly to mind when I viewed this. The lighting, the fish, just an amazing job of composition and execution.

i have to say, while the imagery of diving seems amazing, i am terrified of the idea of breathing through a tube like that. props to you for being so brave! i'm glad this painting captured elements of deep sea imagery for someone who is experienced with it!

Reminds me of the shows I have seen were they are searching for giant squid and instead they find . . . a girl!
