Whale Watching at White Rock Beach

30’’x30’’ acrylic on canvas. This is a painting done during covid when whale activity increased because of the quieter waters. Every night at around 8:30 the grey whales would be close to the shore in the stillness of the lockdown imposed by Covid-19.

Noise of boats and the presence of them interferes with the whales ability to feed and hunt due to interruptions the noise produces in their communication and more effort/energy is therefore needed to communicate and travel away from the noise.

The beautiful area of White Rock is located on the tradional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Coast Salish people, particularly the Semiahmoo First Nation.
