One creature that has an extraordinary power to move me is the humpback whale. I’m drawn to them, and as a child would listen to tapes of their songs as pastime. They’re in my dreams, they’re powerful totems and symbols of love, song, family, and mystery. Painting and drawing them always fills me with a sense of success and peace.
When I started the water colour circle series I figured a humpback would feature. I usually gift my art but I think I’ll keep this one for myself, to remind me of who I am.
