The Sea Creature’s Muse

37 X 27 inches
We can only catch a tiny glimpse of what lies ahead of us. One day as I was skipping stones in the still morning waters at Garry Pt. Park, I came across a stick that seemed to move of it’s own accord. I wondered what was making it move and what lay beneath the water? I imagined that the tip that I saw was the top of a gigantic sea creature beckoning us with a proverbial apple. Pirates of old warned us to be aware of dangerous sirens who sang beautiful songs to lure their prey and I felt that at that instant, I was privy to a sight beheld by the ghosts of the misfortunate.
