Tahlequah’s Journey

Tahlequah’s common name is J 35. She is a twenty year old female killer whale that is a member of J Pod, a family of Southern Residential Killer Whales that live off the Pacific Northwest Coast. On July 24, 2018, Tahlequah gave birth. Her newborn calf died shortly after birth. It was then, sadly that Tahlequah and her pod family began their 17 day journey, traveling over 1,000 miles along the coast mourning her dead calf. With the support of her family she was able to push and prod her lifeless calf through the ocean’s waters. Their sadness was seen and shared with many.

I am intrigued with the Canadian painter, Gordon Smith’s abstract landscapes. His use of long gestural marks and strokes and his undulating patches of colour.

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It's too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
and he pushed,
And they flew.

Christopher Logue (1926-2011) was a an English poet.

This painting of mine was greatly influenced both in style and colour choices by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s painting called, Untitled (Black Catch Scorpio). I have found myself studying this Neo-Impressionism style of painting. I love the mark making and the vibrant patches of colour!

This painting is going to be in a movie! It was rented from The Federation of Canadian Artists for the upcoming movie, “Zoe’s Playlist.”

Today is the opening of "Through Fresh Eyes" at Gallery 1710. Our first feature artist of this exhibition is DIANE AKEY - "I've always enjoyed making art. I have had many roles in my life so far - student, teacher, mother, wife, farmer, and now painter! I paint what I want and where ever my brush takes me! I usually paint in acrylics and oils. Recently, I have been experimenting with cold wax and oils. I like mark making, textures and patches of colours". "Dancing Colours" & "The Peony Bowl" are Diane's works in this show. #paintingwithdiane www.dianeakey.artsites.ca #southdeltaartist #tsawwassenartist #abstractart #abstractartist
