Artist Comments:

The painting is a competitive swimmer, the artist's daughter, about to dive off the swim block. She is a member of the Carleton Place Water Dragons Competitive Swim Team.
The painting can be seen as a symbol of the future athletes of Canadian competitive swimming. There are swim clubs and teams all across Canada which offer highly competitive training as well as recreational programs. These swim clubs train individuals and develop a healthy physical activity which many people continue to pursue for a lifetime.
