An offshoot of my drapeaux
series, this piece takes
symbolism out of the mix and
replaces it with realistic
imagery.  Inspired by the vision
of the bright orange of the
Garibaldi fishes rippling up
through the cool marine colors
of the waters off the coast of
Santa Catalina Island, I sought
to create a similar visual
through pointillism with sequins.
