Early in 2004, I approached the Channel Islands National Parks about making a mural. After discussions with the staff, they requested a mural for the visitor center that demonstrates the biodiversity of the Channel Islands kelp forests. This mural is based on my computer painting of  white seabass. I used over 100 of my underwater and topside images of white seabass to make this painting (and a frozen wsb head!). The images of the remaining fish depicted in the mural were taken with my digital camera or were scanned from slides from my collection. The resolution of the image is high enough so that it can eventually greet guests on the side of the 2-story building.
