"Jellyfish and Seaweed" Acrylic Painting by Lorel Lee
In the fall of 2019, Lorel took a trip to the gulf coast to relax at the beach for the weekend. Normally she brings her waterproof camera to explore the ocean on the paddle board, but this particular weekend she forgot to bring it. While she was out on the board approaching the deeper waters, she started seeing jellyfish swim by. Dozens and dozens turned out to be what looked like hundreds of these jellyfish everywhere she paddled. NEVER in her life has she seen so many jellyfish, and of course, this magical moment could not be captured with a lens since she forgot her camera. After returning home that Sunday night, she went straight into the studio to start painting this magical experience. The dark green represents the seaweed that was at the bottom of the sea floor. The sandy bands of color represent the small patches of sand that were visible from above the water. This scene closely mimics what the view looked like just beside her paddle board. The artist is now ready to part with this lovely original.
