This is a large painting, 36" x 48." It began as an exploration of the foundation color, French Ultramarine, in varying shades. From there, it simply grew into this abstract. Some viewers see it as the Santa Rosa lagoon, hence the title. For me, it is simply an abstract composition which evolved in colors, textures, temperatures, etc.
