Baby Beluga

Baby Beluga


"Baby Beluga" is painted on an 8x10" Canvas with Acrylic paint, in Landscape orientation.

The colors used in this painting include shades of turquoise, light blue, baby blue, deep blue and white.

This work is available as a Silk Scarf and as Fine Art Giclee Reproductions on Paper or Canvas.

This playful image is a classic example of my own unique style of painting where I'm thinking mostly of water and sky, or even just swooshing around shades of blue paint. And then something else very specific appears, seemingly out of nowhere.

I kid you not, I took another look at this one partway through painting it, and realized that the white I had just randomly applied mixing into the bit of light blue in the sky (more than likely just thinking clouds) looked a lot like a whale. Then I saw that it was a small whale, and so "Baby Beluga" rose to the water's surface to dance on the rollicking waves.

It seems that I could not have painted this one on purpose if I tried. So much of my work comes out by itself, as if by happy accident.

In my memory, even the smile and the eye were already there, with a very small bit added to tweak the eye and maybe a tiny extra hint of white for water coming out of the spout. (How developed is a baby beluga's water spout anyway?)

Children in your life will be happy and smile when they look at this bit of sweetness.
