Even though he is landlocked in Chicago, he has always had a love for the ocean. He remembers seeing some marine paintings and thinking, "people paint this sort of thing—this is what I want to do." His earlier works portray the "fantasy" style that is more commonly found as a theme in marine art.
In 2002, Colin decided to move more toward realism. It was a matter of pushing himself to paint what he really saw and loved about the ocean. He does not want his paintings to be strictly a photographic representation; but rather, a depiction of the artist`s passion to capture the life of the ocean through his art. Colin feels his paintings—Frenzy and Dolphins of Tsuneo— capture this passion best.
