'This unique piece is not how it first appears. After texturizing the canvas, I started with a background of yellows, oranges, reds and greens over the entire surface. The first thing I noticed was that the texture appeared to look like "coral".  Next I saw the face of a sea turtle.  Rather than painting a turtle, I painted the space "around" it so that it would pop out, then I added hilites and shadow, bringing it to life.  Next I saw the scaly texture that represented a fish to me. Using the same technique, one creature at a time this painting evolved.  Before long it was teaming with life as all the sea creatures swam around in their amazing surroundings.' Says Heather of this great piece.
