"Reluctant Return" is about that feeling when you know you have to get back to the boat and that magical time underwater is about to come to an end yet the light, the fish, the blue of the ocean is all around you. You hang back and take your time ascending to take in every second that remains.

This acrylic on canvas painting is a perfect conversation starter for any living room, hallway, staircase, or even as a focal point for an office. It's a must-have for any ocean diver to share their adventures and remind them of that special world when they can't be underwater.

  • Acrylic painting on paper, mounted on stretched gallery wrapped heavy duty canvas
  • 16" wide x 20" high x 1.5" depth
  • The scene comes unframed but is painted to the edges and around the sides so that it can be displayed without the need for framing
  • If you do want to personalize the display of this painting with a frame, a floating frame treatment would work well in a neutral colour
