Wonders of the Sea

Mary Sayre's avatar Mary Sayre

A Green Turtle soars above a beautiful coral reef while light filters in the clear water. Hard and soft corals are home to many small tropical fish dancing on the currents. This painting like a scuba dive reveals life as you explore the reef. The Antique Verde Marble is sculpted to represent waves breaking on the surface. The images are painted utilizing the natural color and lines of the marble to create the image. The way the colors and light interplay underwater is an amazing gift to behold and I try to relay that feeling in my paintings. As a scuba diver and advocate of our ocean planet it means everything to me to be able to share our beautiful, mysterious and fragile world found beneath the sea.
