i'm liking the idea of displaying artwork of underwater images in your home, like that large photo in the living room shot above (top, left). i think the large format adds that needed twist to an otherwise traditional room. i imagine the art would be more precious if the people underwater were your children or people you knew. (imagine art directing that photo shoot!) can you believe the image on the top right is actually a painting (by samantha french)?! i am a sucker for photorealism painting (hm, that topic could be a separate post) so, i'm loving her work. as i ventured on this quest to find underwater artwork, i struck gold when i stumbled upon elena kalis' photography - absolutely beautiful!
update: i am feeling a bit under water today. swimming against the tide, i am. how are all of you feeling on this hump day? when you feel under water or ho-hum what do you do? do you have a good meal, take a nap, go for a walk/exercise, or challenge yourself to do something out of your comfort zone? one thing i do know, all this talk of water has me thinking that a spa service might in order.
