"WHO'S FOR DINNER" RICHMOND BEACH ORCAS ON PARADE
Large orca sculptures are swimming to Richmond Beach's Strawberry Festival on May 13th and will be later be displayed around the city of Shoreline (specific locations to come)

I was selected to participate with 21 other artists to decorate a large fiberglass orca sponsored by the city of Shoreline. My orca,Who's for dinner, wears its insides on its outside. I wanted to show the diet range of Pacific Northwest Orcas so I painted translucent layers of acrylic for the orca's vertebrate, and its consumed prey of a Pacific sleeper shark, a harbor seal, and a Chinook salmon. Hope you can check out my orca and the other marvelous mammals in Shoreline!
