Super cute yet strikingly deep, it looks static yet feels dynamic, your template and depictions are on land yet of the ocean aswell.  This is a really fascinating piece, Seth.  Thank YOU so much for creating it and sharing it with us.  Keep up the good work!

It's too small for me to read, but from what text are those pages from?  Regardless, it works!

Thank you for your insightful comment. 
The pages may be from two discarded books: The Hard Hats and The Proud Man.  I will need to double check.

Walking in the woods with my father, oh, decades ago, we came across stone whales, rising, sinking, swimming north. Old leaves across their backs, two sisters dancing on their flukes, and a breeze laughing in autumn twigs.

Its a wonderful work..
...but....its a shame its so low-res...most details in the work are not viewable...just the outlines....
Perhaps you will consider _good_ Giclee prints, not made by DA....

My apologies for the low-res. I have been looking into giclee but when I get extra money, it has to be used for other necessities (house,car). Soon, hopefully soon, I will be able to get giclee prints made.

I am curious what this looks like on your screen (this is in reference to your comment on details not being visible). On my end everything looks clear and visible.

Any enlargement at all, on a medium res screen, ~1024 x ~800, matte or glossy, produces immediate
pixelation of anything I have seen in your wonderful gallery, , and all the details become 
impossibly blurred.
 No exaggeration. 
Even a watermarked work - albeit at barely high res -  3k+ pixels on any side - would be far preferable here at DA.

Thank you for taking time to explain. I will look into raising the resolution. I had keeping it low but did not realize it affected viewing when enlarged.

Good eyes :) . There is a fish/whale there. The recipient of the piece wasn't sure if there was supposed to be a whale there. 
Also in this piece there is a bird and an eye.

Much of it is personal symbolism so it is cool if the viewer doesn't get everything that is going on here. Also it can be interpreted in different ways.
