Tanzie and the Deep Blue Sea

Finished my painting of Tanzie.  I have to name my girls because they become someone with personality by the time I am finished with them.  I have another one to share next time in a red polka dot dress. Haven't named her yet but she is spunky.  These are done on stretched canvas and measure 11 x 14 inches.

The snorkeling picture was taken at the Captain Cook Cove and was a wonderful experience.  The water was wonderful, warm and clear. The coral was fantastic and something I had never experienced before.  We took a boat tour which was about a hour each way and a hour snorkeling.  There were about 50 or 60 people aboard and no other boats in the cove...I didn't realize it at the time but by getting away from the people I was getting into deeper water and seeing less fish. They seem to feed closer to the edge of the reef.  But, the coral was grand....one of the healthiest coral reefs in the world thanks to very little population and pollution.........Have a grand day there is beauty all around us.  Look for it........................DIANE
