The first thought that popped into my head when I saw your painting was something along the lines of 'Life is a tame ocean'. Actually thinking about it, I think I can add more to that, but it's probably not what you were trying to convey. :b

Philosophical labyrinths aside, this looks amazing!

What a beautiful powerful message! We so have to take better care of our precious resources, before they are gone forever at the hand of greed and ignorance of mankind. The details are amazing here, and even down to the "crack" where the chain comes through :) Very nice piece Christopher!

I saw this, liked it, and was intrigued. Then I saw it was not digital, but hand-painted in oils, and then I Really liked it. Digital can be beautiful, but I admire the skill that the actual physical media require.

Great painting! Besides being well-painted, it's a good visual allegory about how life came to be and cannot exist without water.

Amazing! :love: The green water (or perhaps absinthe?) makes it even more surreal. :)
