Headed to Jupiter for a dive session!

I am headed to visit the reefs of #Jupiter today and hoping to capture some great inspiration for the art studio! I will be diving with my Sony RX-100, Inon UWL-100 wide angle lens, Meikon housing, Sea&Sea Ys-01, and my 3D printed strobe arms.

Everywhere this sea turtle goes she draws a crowd. This 30″ x 40″ oil painting on canvas depicts a pair of Moorish Idols, threadfin butterfly fish, millseed butterfly fish, and raccoon butterfly fish all joining her on her journey. Inspired by the marine life of Hawaii, these reef fish school together and offer their services to larger marine animals in the form of cleaning stations. When a pelagic animal stops at a cleaning station, the reef fish rid them of parasites, dead skin, and other ailments. Some even clean the teeth of predators!

Original Painting: $950

Looking out across the bay as the sun sets on another amazing day in the tropics while the ocean laps at your feet. The blazing heat of the day subsides to the cool kiss of mother ocean. This work is perfect for reminding us that the ocean will wait for you. Inspired by the photography of Elijah Nishi.

Original: $690
Prints available!

Mimic octopus added to Buddha’s Reef

Oh yeah! The first of many Indo-Pacific reef creatures to be added. I can’t begin to tell you how exciting it was to paint this fella. Interesting creature, the mimic octopus. It has learned to mimic other reef creatures to evade predation including lionfish, sea serpents, and flounder.
