Underwater

Underwater
I feel like this one needs a fish or something swimming around it or through it since it has such an underwater feel. One of my aspirations in life is to be a scuba diver. It might help me with my fear of water, swimming around under the ocean, seeing all the magnificent undersea life whilst being able to actually breathe. I find it crazy that there are depths of the ocean that haven’t been explored and we (being the world) doesn’t even know what could be down there. Coral reefs alone are just straight-up amazing! And all the beautiful fish there are. This tree piece is made with wire in the color of “grape” and given teal sea-glass for the branches.

The sea is everything. It covers seven-tenths of the terrestrial globe.
Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert where man is never alone for he feels life, quivering around him on every side. There is supreme tranquility. The sea does not belong to despots. On its surface iniquitous rights can still be exercised, men can fight there, devour each other there, and transport all terrestrial horrors there. But at thirty feet below its level their power ceases, their influence dies out, their might disappears.
Ah, sir, live in the bosom of the waters! There alone is independence.
There I recognize no masters! There I am free.
-Jules Verne “2000 Leagues Under The Sea”
