About Whale of a Time

Do you hear that? It is the sound of whales calling out to you from their ocean sanctuary.

Inspired by the beautiful creatures themselves, I was lucky enough to see a mum and her calf recently off the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.  Watching from land, only a hundred or so metres away, I knew how lucky I was to have experienced this marvel of nature. As a result I was determined to capture this wonder on canvas producing a modern painting whales diving in the ocean.

Now if you hadn’t yet noticed, Whale of a time is an original painting that has a beautiful, soft energy. This makes for the perfect beach house artwork. But, if you really want to take advantage of this tranquil piece, the bedroom is a must consideration.  Ready to calm the energy down for sleep.

Orcas, being a type of whale, are the main feature in black and white in my usual contemporary format. As the pod dives into the ocean depths, softer tones of blue green and pale peach surround their bodies. These tones represent an abstract ocean life of sand, water and plant life.

A textured painting using impasto paints, with small imprints of palette knife strokes adds to the stunning effect of this painting. So for all the nature lovers out there, be quick and grab your piece of serenity.

Whale of a Time in the making


Can’t wait to get your Sarah Jane Artwork on the wall? The good news is your artwork comes ready to hang with two D rings and a wire fixed to the back of the stretched canvas.

However, I recommend hanging the painting on the two D rings only where possible. This will reduce the stress on the painting. Oh and remember to always use at least two fixtures in the wall.


Just a reminder, the images on this website are for design purposes only. Therefore they are not necessarily to scale.

A hot tip is to measure out the size of the artwork on your wall before purchase. This will ensure you are happy with the overall look in the space.
