Skeleton

Posted on April 9, 2016 in Paintings

Just back from Vancouver Island University‘s Deep Bay Marine Field Station, a beautiful setting for an architecturally beautiful building. I wanted to see the assembled and installed Grey Whale skeleton, as I sponsored one of its lumbar vertebra…seemed a fitting project for an orthopaedic surgeon to support. Suspended from the ceiling in graceful curves, it reminded me of the elegance of design in the skeleton of any vertebrate, sound engineering with artistic execution. Bones are beautiful.
