Artist Comments:

I chose a swimmer. It was appropriat at the time as I have been thinking alot about producing paintings with swimmers as a suject matter. The topic came up a lot this year. I spend a lot of time with my Sister who used to do a lot of swimming, mostly laps, for excersize. So at times we talk about how she misses it and hopes to get back to it some day. So when asked to be part of this mural project, the swimmer was the first thought that came to mind. I liked the ability to use the aqua colour, and the good excuse to use a little red in her bathing cap.
