You know there are times when so much inspiration comes itʼs hard to know where to begin. This November day I was working with several different images, thinking of winter coming and the solstice indicating a time of change. An idea and memory of an image kept coming to the surface, rising from the subconscious to the conscious. It was the memory of a photograph by a photographer and professional free-diver friend, Jason Sturgis. Jason captured the moment of an orca rising just before it broke the surface of the ocean. I finally stopped what I was doing. I took another look, respected that photograph, and I knew as I admired the capture that it would be a special moment for me that would turn into a new creation. At the time of year when the snow covers the ground and silently falls to the sea, I realize it is a time of healing. The white blanket that covers mother earth is to hold her in a place of continual healing through the winter season. Orca Rising is dedicated to those who dare to face the areas of their lives that need healing, and to those who dedicate themselves to helping others heal. Many thanks to Jason Sturgis for his beautiful photo captures of whales in their ocean domain.
