Artist Comments:
This painting was inspired by the many trips I have taken to the beaches of Vancouver Island.  I’ve always been fascinated by the life that exists underwater - I actually have a B.Sc. degree in Zoology, where I took a ton of invertebrate zoology courses (and loved them!).  The many tidal pools in the nooks and crannies of the rocks during low tide are just a glimpse into this fascinating underwater world.  And since I was just recently in Tofino, I found a few great examples of mussels and sea anemones to paint.
