My lawyer told me to make clear the following before posting anything:
These works are works of fiction. All imagery, visual or literary, is invented. Invented- as in fabrications, fables, fantasies. As in unless there is a credit, I made it up. As in if you think you see yourself in this imagery, read again from the beginning of this paragraph, step in so I can slap the righteous indignation off your face, and grasp that any similarity is probably due to the statistical likelihood that you are not the only befuddling ignoramus to mess up a mundane existence such that it becomes rehashed and embellished over beers.
So to recap, if I paint or write about water, there is a possibility it was inspired by actual water.
