Diving In is part of my Waterworks series.
A man gracefully dives into the crystal clear water, disappearing beneath the surface. As he descends, the pressure intensifies, but he remains calm and focused. He swims effortlessly, his body cutting through the water like a knife. Rays of sunlight pierce through the depths, casting mesmerizing patterns on the ocean floor. As he explores the depths, he feels a sense of tranquility and awe, completely at home in this magical underwater realm.
This painting was made with oil paints on a gallery canvas, which does not require framing, as the sides are painted. The painting has been coated with archival varnish, which extends its longevity and further protects it from dust and scratches.
