A Modern Day Moby Dick, A Ghost Or A Mythical Creature Of Legend

An artist has to be free and not tied to others expectations.

In these days of conformity it can be up to those who are willing and daring enough to take risks.

In every society those people are artists.

For me the white whale is a modern day Moby Dick. A ghost or a Mythical creature of legend.

A creature we are bound to. The largest living animal. .
Our canary in the mine who if we cause the destruction of, we also will ultimately be destroyed.

White Whale Painting by Stephanie Burns
Thinking about the meaning of my white whales today as I’ve been invited to participate in a whale conservation project. Preparing to paint another white whale.
