If you have a chance to drive to the convention center or if you are visiting the bird sanctuary, you have to go see this painting! It is gorgeous!

I didn't know much about Wyland until my husband read a book about him. Wyland has done 100 wall murals around the world, as a large canvas on which to work and to promote preservation of the oceans, particularly whales. This wall on South Padre Island is his 57th wall. His wall murals are worth seeing and we will search them out from now on when we are on holidays. He complets them quite qucikly. He once di 17 in 17 weeks. That he able to keep his perspective while painting on such a large "canvas " is amazing. His sculptures which we saw in hawaii are incredible.

I love Wyland's art work and especially his whaling walls. This is one of his best and biggest.
