This piece has many influences, but was mainly made as an homage to my brother Peter on the 10th anniversary of his death. His favorite color was blue and he was a great lover of water – swimmer, scuba diver and merchant seaman. Above all else he adored me. This is also a continuation with my dimensional fringe – trying to see what else it can suggest as well as a continuing fascination with a painterly approach to coloring and finally trying a new approach to portray water. The name exemplifies my love of language and puns.
