a flying fish for woo

In early December, 2012, a group of Tampa Bay artists payed tribute to their recently departed beloved friend and fellow artist, Bill Correira Woo, painter of fish. Led by artist / organizer Derek Donnelly, we collaborated on a public mural called “WooMorial” in his honor. This time-lapse video captures the making of that mural, with a focus on my contribution, "A Flying Fish For Woo", accompanied by my original song, “Woo”.

And stroke by stroke

creating a new world

The deeper you go

The higher you fly


You faced down your demons

Head on with a smile

Too soon you would leave us

Just here for a while

(What a guy)


Woo

Woo

Woo

We miss you


Woo

Woo

Woo

Has gone home


Woo

Woo

Woo

We love you

Woo

(Lyrics)

A man can dream

as deep as the ocean

In darkest reaches

finds a place


Where he can share

his inspiration

And welcomes all

with humor and grace


Obeying your wishes

Way down in the blue

Sea creatures and fishes

All whispering Woo

(Wouldn't you?)


Woo

Woo

Woo

Where are you


Woo

Woo

Woo

Don't leave us alone


The artist paints

true colors with passion

in deepest blue

and brightest white
