|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.
