Description Acrylic on canvas. 20' by 16'. September, 2011.
My friend Vernon and I went to Santa Cruz Harbor for a painting session. The waters were fill of lifeapparently a school of mackerel had swum in, and the pelicans and seals were there feeding. I liked how this cute baby seal seemed to hover so weightlessly in the very clear water. I started this painting on the spot, and finished it at home, working with some photographs Id taken. It had been awhile since I used acrylics, and I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I was done.
