ACEO Orca Whales Puget Sound Watercolor Painting

"Orcas in the Wild"

The past week I have enjoyed painting one of my favorite subjects: Orca whales.  These striking marine mammals are residents of Puget Sound, Washington.  On each occasion that my family and I have visited the San Juan Islands, we have seen orca pods swimming free and feeding on salmon.  Many wild orca feed on marine mammals - but the pods in Puget Sound and the Straits of Juan de Fuca have been feeding primarily on salmon for generations.  It is always a delight to see these majestic mammals 'wild and free'.
