This painting captures a moment below the sea with a beautiful seahorse surrounded by seaweed and anemone in colors of pink, violet and blue. A pink pearl, sea shells, and a lost key - perhaps to a trunk on a sunken ship - sit on the ocean floor. The seahorse floats in the current secured by a cluster of anemone wrapped around his tail, his white tendrils waving behind him.
The work is painted with oils over a copper background, which gives a deep glow when light hits the canvas. The color tones have been transposed to apply the blue and green sea tones to the seahorse and the copper tones to the background, creating a subtle tension between the cool and warm tones while causing our eyes to circle the canvas and return to the seahorse again and again.
