Turbulent Times Mural

A rough sea with a blue-grey gradient and various colors of blue to white waves. In that sea: a number of orcas. Each orca has different designs within their bodies and dorsal fin. Lightning and thunderclouds in the sky, with a hidden octopus per request by the younger generation. The story behind the image ties into the Salish Sea and the current pandemic: we’re all experiencing turbulent times and we deal with them similarly, but we still are each unique individuals with unique traits.
