The Kelp Forest off the Coast of San Diego, CA, is a special and magical place. In the summer, there is an abundance of sargo, opaleyes, Garibaldi, and leopard sharks. The giant kelp stands support a huge number of species and are just a few meters from shore. This painting was inspired by the beautiful and endangered world beneath the waves. As the waters warm due to Climate Change, the ecosystem is also changing. This is a snapshot in time. Perhaps the view will be different in 10 years.
This painting was created using hand-painted ephemera such as articles about the kelp forest and its fish, sheet music, star charts, local San Diego maps, restaurant reviews, and newspaper clippings. Layers were built up to create a feeling of water and depth.
