Three Humpbacks in the Kelp
The original has sold but this artwork is available as a limited edition giclée reproduction.
Humpback Whales were severely hunted until 1968 when the last whaling station at Coal Harbour on the B.C. coast was finally closed. In the last decade their numbers have begun to make a remarkable come back and whale watching tours are now commonly seeing humpbacks in almost all of their former range. They can often be seen in the summer close to shore where they come to the surface covered in kelp. I have never had the good luck to observe them underwater but with a bit of imagination and my love affair with kelp beds I have created what I feel their world below the surface must look like.
