The Bird that Woke the Whales

One morning during our 2018 Summer road trip, we took a whale watching trip. The morning air was filled of fog. There were some birds about. And then a pair of sleeping whales were spotted. As a good samaritan, as if the bird knew we were out there to observe the large mammals, a young seagull poked at the larger whale and the two whales sunk below the surface. Not sure if we would ever see the pair, we patiently waited anyways. But we did not have to wait for long. Like a torpedo, the little calf, with great force came splashing up out of the water towards the boat. Followed by mother, with a more graceful approach.

I have added three of my favorite images from this event to my Society6 shop. Here you can purchase the art prints, or the images on items for your home or office. I did add texture to the photographs. I think that the smoothness of the whale skin and the sleekness of the bird wings becomes more of a focal point among the fog and water.

New Acrylics and More

I am still in the process of catching-up from a Summer of traveling, and life in general has been busy this Autumn. When I can, I have been going through my stash of new photographs and working on my shops. I have added a few new products to my Society6 shop. Recently the company had released new items, such as: wall murals, keepsake boxes, trays, can covers, cutting boards and coasters. And they are now live in my shop. Yay!

Here are sample images of the new products.
