I have had a love of humpback whales ever since my family went on a whale-watching trip off the coast of Boston and saw a mama humpback napping with her baby.
If I paint a whale, I always gravitate to humpbacks. I think every person has animals that they connect with, and I believe that animals can be used to describe different personality types.
Whether or not you feel humpbacks represent you, this flashing, splashing Fluke is a beautiful reminder to both have fun on the surface, as well as to dive deep into still waters.
This painting is 16x20", acrylic on canvas.
