This is a painting for “The Final Crit,” where the assignment was about Fear/Hell on Earth. For me, as I said before when I showed the thumbnail, I do not like swimming in open water, for fear of the unknown. Now that summer is here, and I frequent the Jersey shore, I also am reminded that I don’t like swimming there either, because I can’t see my feet. Have you ever seen a half a man swallowed by a giant undiscovered fish? Me either, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen…all the time! The funny thing is, I grew up on the beach, you’d think I’d have some rational thoughts.
(Not to mention a couple months ago when a friend of mine chased me on the beach holding a mysterious “sea worm” that wrapped around her hand. I am traumatized at 24.)
Anyway, enjoy the painting!
