Inspired by a daytime ocean swim past a palm-studded park, this painting evolved into a nocturne , concentrating on different lights: moonlight; house lights, and starlight. The piece is about earth's connection to heaven. "Heaven is under our feet, as well as above our heads"--Thoreau.

Judge's Comment: "The mood and color harmony in this painting are what really drew me in, but when I read the description, I gained even more respect for Rick's accomplishment in this painting. He has such an experienced understanding of light and form in the natural world that he was able to contrive this scene using both reality and his imagination. To me that's the sign of a true artist!"
