These images record a lifetime of Al's memories diving amongst the sea creatures in Hawaii's underwater garden of life. Al created these paintings from a composite of his memories diving in Hawaii.

During the long winter nights as a child Al would often look up from his bedroom window to the Northern Lights shimmering across a star-filled winter sky. Snow reflected brilliant patterns of blue, red, and green from the Aurora Borealis dancing high over head. He daydreamed endlessly of mythical creatures living in the brilliant light above. Al combined his pleasant childhood memories of the Northern Lights with the Grand Teton mountain range of Wyoming, near Yellowstone, with a wolf howling at the full moon.
