Underwater Paintings

By American painter Samantha French. Showing great technique and knowledge of the subject, the artist has this to say about the series:

Using vague yet consuming memories from my childhood summers spent immersed in the tepid lakes of northern Minnesota, I attempt to recreate the quiet tranquility of water and nature; of days spent sinking and floating, still and peaceful."
