I can almost feel the water in The Great Journey by *maui-dolphin. The light reflections are perfect.

I am not pro captivity, nor am I an activist. I do not mention marine parks on my page. I understand the issues, but I do not wish to force my opinions upon others, if you understand?

This drawing gives me such a special feeling... the water is so cold and dark and deep, but in all of the sudden those guys pop up. No idea where they are going, but it surely is an important journey. The painting almost tells a whole story! It's so touching. And you did a great job on the water etc.
