My hometown. Oil is the industry that boomed here in the 80's; a place where the car means freedom. These were based near the University of Calgary and a suburb made up of California-inspired housing called The Hamptons, presumably named after its namesake in New York. These watery abstractions capture a certain fleeting feeling, not unlike those of a passenger in a car.
