Rapture of the Deep

Rapture of the Deep by Karen Gadient, 2014
Rapture of the Deep. Created with Corel Painter.

This one came from a dream I had recently where I was a diver deep below in some luminous sea. All around me were shadowy creatures, barely there and yet observable—harmless, welcoming, with some casting out light toward me and others racing around to leave trails behind them. It was a short dream, but oddly relaxing. It stuck with me, so I’ve tried to capture it with color.

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace. — Kate Chopin
