Whales are Larger than Prehistoric Dinosaurs!


The 2nd annual Northern Right Whale festival just happened here in North Florida! The festivities, overlooking the Jacksonville ocean, served to remind us the whales need our protection as they visit for the winter, calving in the warmer waters of the Southeast. My piece "Ocean Mandala" is inspired by the incredible people working to protect these huge, magnificent creatures. Did you know some species of whales existing today are *larger* that the prehistoric dinosaur?!
Thanks for visiting and have a whale of a week. ; )
