California marine life in trouble — Quick auction for donation!

Our marine wildlife is in crisis here in California. The rescue centers are full, volunteers are exhausted and giving their all. And more animals need help everyday. I want to donate the full proceeds from the following two mini paintings to our local chapter of the Pacific Marine Mammal Center to help at least a little. Would you help?

You can read more on the issue here: http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/02/19/us-usa-wildlife-california-idUSKBN0LN01620150219

Simply bid on which painting you would like to buy from the links below… They are each 5″x7″ acrylic originals on canvas. Highest bidder wins and I will donate your entire payment and send you the painting. It may even be partially tax deductible (check with your accountant). Thank you.

The humpback whales are going crazy!

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?
