You know I have this problem of creating one or maybe two related scenes, but after that I'm stuck! I'm fully aware that there needs to be a total of three to make a series complete (at least for me). I am now on a mission to make sure that there are at least three of a particular theme available in my shop. So can I just say how happy I was to complete the first set of three illustrations featuring the whale / nautical theme! I was so very close to not finishing this series out due to my discovery of an amazing artist (I promise I share more later when I'm in a better mood), who absolutely captures what I want to capture about childhood. Only he captures it in on a slightly different level. So self doubt came in to play, but I overcame it and was able to finish these out on the Fourth of July!
Did you know that the whale is a symbol of creativity and intuition? It's purely unintentional, but oh how my love for the whale has increased ten fold:
I just completed these! And they match this "Whale of a Wish Illustration" :
I'm an independent artist located in Utah. Most of my work is centered around Children's Art Prints, Original Paintings, and my illustration works. You'll most often find me carrying around one of these materials (pencil, kneaded eraser, paint brush, charcoal, watercolors, acrylic, clay, or PMC).
