I have been thinking about Migaloo Diving as I have been invited to participate in a whale conservation project here in the UK by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Centre. I’m going to be painting Migaloo for them. A smaller and slightly different view than the original painting that was destroyed in the recent bushfires in Australia.
The conservation project I’ll be working for is about increasing awareness of the issue of ocean plastics and how it is affecting whales and dolphins. Showing how we can all work together to help protect the ocean and all the marine life that depend on it.
This is the drawing for the new conservation painting. It will be my 26th painting of Migaloo.
Some of the other large works and Migaloo Diving are in the image below.
More and more museums are focusing on ecological art. The Serpentine Gallery in London has just appointed a full time ecological curator for exhibitions. One day my work on Migaloo and other eco awareness paintings in my oeuvre will be in museum exhibitions.
We just need more representation of women artists in museums and commercial galleries.
