Width: 10.75" Length: 7.75"
Materials/Techniques: Cottons. The whale tail is one layer of wool and one layer of cotton stitched to the painted background. The batting and backing were added then quilted with variegated thread.
Artist Statement: The shape of the whale tail is so beautiful to me. The way it waves good-bye as the whale begins its dive to depths that we can only imagine. The power as it slaps the water displacing gallons and gallons at a time. It's impossible for me to just look past a photo of a whales tail. I have to take time to ponder where it is, where it has been and where it is going...
