"Floating is a self portrait of me swimming in water. I wanted to paint someone semi-submerged in water. I am blissfully happy as my face is slowly submerged. I am also very interested in the patterns of the water around me and parts of the body that seemingly mingle into the water. I have used glass beads to create texture and the painting is finished with resin." ~ Oenone Hammersley
