You might remember that I was showing the development of this painting a couple of months ago as a painting in progress. I decided not to show the finished work until after the opening of my Solo Exhibit at the Lawrence Street Gallery in Ferndale, Michigan which will end on the 27th of this month. (See gallery web site for hours)
I'm very pleased with the outcome of this piece because its final presentation is just as I envisioned it long before the first sketches were drawn. This painting has a less vibrant color palette than most of my other work as it reflects the calm serene nature of this creature which to me is like a friendly peaceful ambassador of the Sea.
