The ocean gives back...........

A recent front page story of the SF Chronicle told the true story of a humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused > her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, and a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate ) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she> was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. > When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around ~ she was thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

Spring....Life renewed

Spring has finally arrived and with it comes new life and changes.....renewed, clean and fresh smelling.
I have been out of touch for a few weeks with personal business and a family death.........but I am now ready to get myself back on track with my painting and other things. One of the things I have been working on is to put Paypal on my website as an easier way of ordering paintings and prints. There are still a few bugs to work out on my Art Prints and Notecards and MiniPrints pages, so to get the reduced prices on these items, go to the Ordering page to email or phone me. I can take your credit card over the phone.
