"I enjoy working with ocean themes and I had an itch to paint a whale underwater. This image sat on the backburner in my imagination for a while. I felt sad thinking about it. Eventually I just had to paint it, get it out of my system, kind of like a personal exorcism. I feel it is a strong image, and with my work, I really try to find a balance between the absurd and the sublime."
"The title, Goodbye, is the tail waving farewell to humanity, and humanity to the whale, the natural world. I think it is a reminder of the natural beauty that we are losing every day, as well as a reminder of how hard we have to fight to preserve it."
