Years ago I had to design a web site for Environmental Chemistry Courseware designed to promote environmental awareness supplemental to 200-level Organic Chemistry laboratories. The key concepts were: air / earth / life / water.
Originally I was a little conflicted as both air and water were blue. Then I saw some photos I had shot of of sockeye salmon spawning in a stream, and I chose this image for ‘water’.
The sight of the brilliant red and olive sockeye salmon was very inspiring for paintings as well. Part of the experimentation was to find a way to convey the water. This watercolour painting uses a flowing stream.
This acrylic collage uses a watery acrylic.
Here is a third with cuts in it revealing red paper beneath to convey the way the salmon image was broken up by moving through the water.
