The painting "Danger in the Water" is a visual representation of the vulnerability of humpback whales, featuring the all-white humpback whale Migaloo. Migaloo was first spotted off the coast of Australia, near Byron Bay, in 1991 and has since become a symbol of hope for humpback whale populations. However, this magnificent creature also serves as a stark reminder of the threats facing humpback whales, from human interference and predation to whaling.

In the painting, a white calf is depicted jumping out of the ocean, with a stunning red sandy cliff in the background. An orca can be seen in the water below the whale calf, representing the danger that these majestic creatures face from predators. The painting is part of a series that tells the story of Migaloo's journey up and down the coast and highlights the challenges that humpback whales face as a result of human actions.

Despite the calf being an awe-inspiring member of his species, humpback whales are still under threat. The painting serves as a poignant reminder that, even with the white calf's presence as a symbol of hope, we must continue to protect these amazing creatures from harm.
