This drawing resulted from a trip to Grand Cayman Island when I was visiting my brother Jim Rauch. My brother lived for years right on the sandy white beaches that were next to the turquoise blue carribean ocean. The water in Grand Cayman is so clear that you can see as if you were in a swimming pool when you are snorkling. The shells and the tropical foliage were facinating to me. One day I happened to notice that certain things in flowers reminded me somewhat of some of the lines I saw in shells. This drawing was made to show a connection between the sea and the land. I call it “Genesis” because the shell is beginning a transformation into a flower.
