Every day when you jump in a boat and you go to this spot or that spot, then when you come back home, you yarn with family about these places. It makes you think about what you saw on the way to this reef or whatever. Like the little waves on milky water, saltwater mixed up with freshwater.
When I am doing a painting, I think about that day we went up the river or to a reef and crossed deep channels or big waves out there. I paint the stories from those days.
