The Whales of Safety vs. the Foul Mood

The Whales of Safety 1- 4
8 x 16 inches, acrylic on canvas, framed

The first thing I had to do to get me out of the bad mood that I'd been in was paint some whales, some Schleich whales to be precise. Most of the animals that I paint are based on models, toy plastic dollar store animals, they're easier to work with. Schleich is the company that makes the best (and most expensive) plastic animals you've ever seen. These ""Whales of Safety" were based on a light concept, that whales are actually here to save us (see Star Trek IV), I'd like to thank Chris Gale for coining the term, "Whambulance" to describe their function, think Jonah and the Whale, he was being carried somewhere, I don't know if this makes any sense, but it does cheer me up a bit.

If you'd like one, I suggest you buy now, they aren't going to last.
