Not long ago I saw a photograph in a listicle of supposedly creepy things that showed a sunlit wave that was filled with long seaweed leaves. I suppose the author of the article thought that it looked unearthly and monstrous, but I was fascinated, enchanted by this glimpse into the world below the surface. Sunlight on the wave made the water glow and revealed the submerged kelp dancing within the crest. With this piece I have tried to recreate the beauty that I saw in that image.
