Artist Comments:

For my panel I chose to paint an image of scuba diving, a sport that I love because it is non-competetive and all about interacting with nature. Diving immerses you in an alien world with almost zero gravity, strange creatures, graceful motion and flickering soft lighting. The wildlife is everywhere from humble molluscs to grand and impressive marine mammals. When diving it is the humans that are fish out of water because we can only make short visits to the underwater world. Every moment under the surface is precious.
