    “Beyond the Reef”
    This painting is my tribute to the vintage song that was all the rage in 1948. The tune gained popularity during the mid-century American Hawaii-craze and was recorded by every-one from Bing Crosby, Vic Damone, The Ventures, to Andy Williams, and even Elvis (the King) Presley. 
    This haunting tune remains a standard even today in the current retro-Hawaiianna Tiki-craze.
    I added into the painting remembered sights of fantastically cursed pirate treasure and the equally cursed crew that I recall from my 10 year old eyes-wide first experience of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. 

    Colorful coral & creatures surround a mysterious sunken tiki and it’s secret lost golden booty. 
    This was the second underwater scene I painted, and it showed me the thrill of designing tropical fish. 
    No matter how bizarre you make up a fish, you’ll find it’s actual living counterpart somewhere in the real ocean depths! It’s amazing! The sea is an endless cornucopia of lovely wonder, and it’s all just… BEYOND the REEF
