Whalesbone

Whalesbone, Sperm Whale

Whalesbone is also an Ottawa institution and their (4th) space on Elgin Street demanded a large custom made Sperm Whale. The painting is 17′ long and I was unable to stand back and see it in its entirety in my studio. I took the print of the whale from the sidewalk under the Kent Street underpass. Once it was finished, three of us walked it down Gladstone Ave., north on Elgin Street and through the large double windows of the Whalesbone. This is the longest painting I have ever completed.
