When I think of the orca, I think of power. The whale is one of the most powerful creatures of the sea. I decided to give this original print a big, bold, ominous feeling. If you were diving or in a small boat and you saw this orca rushing at you, you might wonder if you were going to be the first human in recorded history to be attacked. I wanted to show the big, black, bulbous, prow-like head of the orca and the towering fin, which can be taller than a man on the big, dominant bull orcas. I wanted to show the swirl of the water because he's moving quite quickly, and he's moving right toward you. - RB
This original stone lithograph was printed in four colors and enhanced with hand coloring.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
