Most of you know that I am a huge fan of collaborations. I think that working with other people can push you to your full potential and teach you more about the the world, yourself, and each other, than you would learn working in isolation. That is why I am so thrilled to announce my current series with Dr. Gary Rose from Florida Atlantic University- 19 different species of sharks for his upcoming lectures. These 5"x7" vignettes will be creative examples of each shark to share during his presentation, "Sharks of the Florida Coast and Caribbean." I will be posting them daily on Instagram and Facebook in the next few weeks, so follow along! These one of a kind originals (like the Thresher shark above) will be for sale, but need to be part of the exhibition and lecture series. However, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is one you want to put on hold.
Dr. Gary Rose will discuss the basic facts about sharks in our waters. He will teach you a simple technique to easily distinguish the different species of sharks from each other. He will also give you an entertaining overview of what makes sharks such great survivors – how their multiple senses are so different than our own. I am really looking forward to learning these details as I portray them in watercolor to display at Force-E. All are welcome, but you will want to make a reservation with Forc-E Dive Center to hold you spot. The first is 7-9pm on Thursday, Sept. 10th at Force-E Boca. The second lecture is on Saturday, Sept. 16th at 10am, followed by a two tank dive at Riviera BeachForce-E. Again, make sure to call to make your reservations for one of these awesome events. The shark lecture is also scheduled to be part of Dr. Rose's dive medicine seminar series in The Bahamas this coming February.
