In this artistic photograph, a female figure floats joyously in a pool of brilliant blue water. She has tipped her head black; unconcerned with the world around her. Her face is turned away and only partially visible. Blonde hair streams away and ripples radiate from her body. Her chest is arched into the air and her outstretched arms dip into the cool water surrounding her. Her feet dip in the water as well.

The disposition of the main character is decidedly relaxed. Although somewhat theatrical, her pose depicts her at rest. The serene surroundings and harmonious colors add to the peaceful mood.

The bright blue and white stripes of the pool toy set a festive mood. This playful addition recalls the frolicsome elements used in advertising photography, in what is likely a satirical reference in the context of art photography.

Fresh water flows into the pool in the upper left corner of the image. The water falling over the spillway brings to mind a sense of renewal and constant motion.

Hanging vegetation adorns the top of the frame, with a shadow that extends to the upper right corner. These dense areas of color help to frame the figure below and connect to the spillway, extending this compositional element.

The cropping and framing of the composition gives the sensation that the viewer is hovering over the water. This close point of view suggests a familiarity with the subject and a welcome presence in the scene. The viewer is drawn into the image almost as a participant in the experience of floating in the pool.

When you buy artistic photography directly from the studio, you can be assured that it is a legitimate A. K. Nicholas original. The artwork will be hand signed and numbered in the lower margin. The artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity.
