For the first time in a while, I was able to visit Calley as she continues work on the Whale painting. It’s so exciting to watch the progress, like a child, growing over periods of time. On this day, Calley was working on the border, enhancing the DNA strands with a lively poem. At the top of the painting will be a set of hands, replicating a whale tale, holding the earth. This pencil drawing is the first glimpse; stay tuned for it to develop into its coming beauty. THIS is what I love about following the progress of these paintings. Seeing it in the whisper of a pencil and then develop into the promised beauty if a wonderful process to behold.
Here are a few shots of the painting as it is progressing. Enjoy!
