Hawaii artist Karen Whitworth shares about the inspiration behind this Hawaiian artwork:
"This painting was inspired by my first snorkeling experience off of Black Rock on the Hawaiian island of Maui. My husband and I could not believe the amount of life and explosive color that existed below the waves, mere steps into the vibrant blue ocean. What diverse beauty! I was drawn to the varied textures and shapes layered on top of one another, descending into the salty depths, fading into the distance as the water became more and more blue. It was like a beautiful symphony, only instead of sound, this score was composed of color and value. A clear melody played prominently with the vibrant coral and colorful fish, while an infinite chorus of harmony echoed the calming message of the ocean amongst the faded shapes in the distance, hints at marine life and hidden coves just beyond my vision. I would have been content with just floating here amongst the fish on the reef, but wat overjoyed when we were joined by this beautiful and gentle Green Sea Turtle. His movements were so graceful, gliding effortlessly through the crystal clear water as he approached our space and proceeded about his turtle business, feeding on vegetation tucked amongst the lava rock seawall. This dreamy Hawaiian turtle experience is definitely something I will never forget"
