This painting imagines an entire ocean floor with solar panel installations and using the coastal surface areas for solar panels. The painting is a thought starter, and not to be taken so literally. There would be ecological implications and in no way am I intending there to be a disruption to ecology. But in some ways, if 70% of the earth is covered in water, perhaps there some way to leverage the surface area of the ocean.

This painting was inspired by this quote by David Viscott: “To Love And Be Loved Is To Feel The Sun From Both Sides.”
