I wanted to combine the surreal and the fantasy land since the ocean lacks somewhat for landscape. I thought about what would happen to a drifter if it came ashore. I think it would become a vessel for a rooting tree. I thought its branches would turn to sea water and it would flower fish instead of dogwoods. I used blue mountains and didn’t want the tree to flow into the mountain, although upon thinking about it, that could be good… I have been thinking about skies and clouds more since my visit to the dentist. There’s a surreal painting of a clown and a girl in the sky by a cliff. Blue cloudy skies are traditionally surreal. See: Magritte.
