The story of this painting is particular as at first I started a painting having another subject in mind, it had to be a girl with a robin.
I had prepared the canvas, and while I was starting the background colour I listened to Michael Jackson's Earth Song on-line.
For an instant I turned my head and just saw the clip sequence, when a dolphin tries to escape the net he's prisoner in.
The sorrow I felt at that moment and the suffocation of the dolphin I could feel, were so painful that I couldn't paint any more, and the only way I found to overcome that feeling was to imagine an outcome... The hoped outcome I wished have been possible to that poor dolphin struggling to stay alive.
