Description: Reflections of Catalina
10X8 Pen & Ink hit with Pastels on Strathmore Water Color Paper: Finally finished this one, just in time for Marina Del Rey Anglers. I started this in September on the back of my boat FORTUNA, as I was just meditating on the Kelp Beds and their marvelous reflections and clear water views beneath them. Wonderful place to dive here right off White’s Landing on the North side of Catalina.
Here sitting in my dingy with pen & ink rocking gently over the lush kelp beds underneath me, I realize what pure and awesome place Catalina Island has been for me and my children!
Much of the credit goes to the Catalina Conservancy Board who over the last 100 years have prevented large commercial projects from developing on this island and struggled to keep these waters pure through aggressive pursuit of our Clean Water Act.
