My client and her husband took a vacation to Puerto Rico and as part of the vacation was spent at Visques Bioluminescent Bay. There is algae in the water there that glows when the water is disturbed, then fades out. If you put your hand in the water, take it out and let the water run down, it looks like glitter in the water running down your hand. It's magical!
My client wanted to commission this sculpture for a Christmas present for her husband. It turned out to be more than she ever expected! The size is a largest sculpture that I have done to this point. To get the glitter effect, I glued aqua mini rhinestones where the boat and the paddles would disturb the water. I did the research to figure out how to get that effect, and she said it was accurate.
