'Women swimming with a blue ball'

Stand oil on canvas

(Collection of the artist)


I was in Los Vegas, looking through the window of a casino. Eight women in skin tone swim suits slowly walked towards the outside swimming pool. A large blue ball floated on the water. The woman started to swim in formation. They appeared to be naked. Several waiters came out with huge pots of flowers and sat them around the pool so the women seemed to be swimming between the leaves of the flowers. A woman in a white swim suit and a man in black trunks appeared and stood side by side at the edge of the pool. A preacher appeared and went through a marriage ceremony. The couple then dove into the pool. I later found out the bride was a member of an Olympic swim team.
