I was astounded when someone first alerted me to the fact that we are made up of 98 or 65 or what ever it is % of water and that just as the moon affects other bodies of water like the ocean tides and so on, so it affects our lives. Although this canvas started life as a companion piece to the "Desert" painting ,"Trust", it soon took off to somewhere completely unexpected when my back was turned and it became more and more complex as they occasionally do. To mix in a few metaphors, it was like a thread unravelling as I chased the train wondering where it would all end. Just then three gold fish swam into view soon putting an end to all that nonsense.
