I’ve mentioned before, I’m a certified cetacean nut! And humpback whales are my favorite. The humpback whales have been so numerous and active here this past week that I’ve actually strained my eyes and given myself headaches from going out several times a day to watch them with my binoculars while they feed, lunge, breach and play just offshore.
Needless to say, I’m in heaven.
And, they’ve inspired me to paint and sketch them almost non-stop. Here’s a watercolor painting I just finished. Do you love whales, too?

I’ve been busy… busy with a child out for the summer and a husband at work. Working from home. Painting in my spare time. I love it!
The June gloom has departed over the past week, leaving us with beautiful weather and gorgeous seas. I was able to sneak in a whale watching trip… seeing both blue and humpback whales. What a treat.
Here’s one of the paintings in progress – titled Grounded.
Another work started and in it’s infancy… “Techno Cat.” This one will evolve a lot over the next week or two. This is one of my favorites so far.
Talk to you soon 🙂
