When I was a little kid growing up in Palm Springs, California, I thought water came magically from the kitchen sink and ended up collecting in the swimming pool. I was endlessly fascinated by the cool aqua colors and weird patterns of light dancing on the surface and bouncing off the bottom of swimming pool.

Ripple effect plays with the idea of light and shadow, hinting of summer's cool aqua ease. They are an exploration of water surface, tension, deep shadow, dancing light, and of childhood memories of time spent happily spacing out over water.
