"The Dolphins Flee"
In the news today, I read that the sea creatures are now fleeing the Gulf oil spill area. It broke my heart many days ago to read of a death of a dolphin in the area..they weren't sure if it was the oil that caused the death, but to know that this disaster will forever change the area is real. I am contributing these two 2.5 x 3.5 watercolor illustrations to Kelly Light's Ripple effort..if you are not familiar with it, please do visit here.
As of today, the donations to the two non-profits, The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, and the International Bird Rescue Research Center, has exceeded $3,000.
Thank you Nina and Amy for purchasing them on behalf of the cause! I will send them very soon.
Thanks everyone for checking out ripplesketches.blogspot.com/
Each day, there are so many more amazing works of art available...and it looks like Kelly is getting some great support, too. What a great community of artists and art-lovers this is. : )
