Identical

Narwhals from the Arctic! And it's the males that show off beautiful tusks. Down here in northern Florida, there'll soon be a spirited celebration of whales at annual Right Whale festival, hosted in Jacksonville at the sea walk pavilion during the month of November. In comparison the nawhal, the northern right whale population is *extremely* sparse.
The Nawhals' mottled skin is perfect for watercolor; there is a beauty in the spontaneity of the colors moving about.


And here is a pic of the new piece I am carving in the perfect studio—outdoors, with a "Lifetime" portable table ("lifetime" is branded on the top of the table, as if singing a metaphor). Thanks for stopping by!
