A beam of light shines down through the dark, cold ocean, onto the longing beast. The setting is one of solitude. The cool palette communicates a feeling of calm and a power deep within. This is "Orca Blues," by artist Karen Whitworth
This beautiful animal has enamored the artist since childhood. The iconic sea mammal is a cousin to the dolphin and is commonly found off the west coast of North America where it feeds on salmon and small sea mammals. Here it has flourished among the islands off Alaska's gulf coast, British Columbia, and the waters of Puget Sound of Washington. Over this larger region, the killer whale has mesmerized locals for millennia. With such a strong importance to their daily life, Native peoples throughout the Pacific Northwest have intricately woven the killer whale into their culture where it is still honored to this day.

Thanks to this premium printing method, each canvas features incredibly rich colors and beautiful details that pop in a stunning way.
