3763 – Genesis

3763 – Genesis

Acrylic on Canvas

24 x 30 inches, Unframed

To name this painting, I posted on social media and asked for suggestions. The one that touched me and rang true was Genesis.

Why Genesis? The word itself comes from the Greek, “gignesthai” meaning “to be born”. The idea of birth or rebirth for this painting fits as it reflects the return to healthy populations of a once endangered species (Humpback Whales) and further my optimistic hope for the restoration of our oceans. In a more practical way, Genesis, connects to the birth of the whale calf.
