*What is "Gallery Wrapped"? - AKA: canvas over bars, canvas stretched over bars, stretched canvas, mounted canvas - basically a normal canvas that is stretched over a wooden frame that you would find at an art store! This does not need to be framed.

My First Great White Shark Encounter:
During a field course in South Africa for my master’s degree, we dove all along the coast studying corals, butterfly fish, and sharks. We went to Gansbaai (pronounced Hans-bye) and did cage diving with Great White Sharks. The water was frigged (colder than California!) and super murky – but we definitely saw that big shark that swam past our cage! I painted the shark in a romanticized way since most people are afraid of them. Hoping to change that fear into awe.
Spiritually speaking, the shark symbolizes protection, guidance, focus, authority, adventure, and opportunity. When the shark is your spirit animal, you have been given the ability to swiftly go after what you want in life. As apex predators, sharks move through the ocean’s depths with fierceness and authority. Thus, the shark power animal reminds you that once you’ve committed to something, providence will move through to make it happen. You just have to laser focus on what you want to achieve. If a shark makes himself or herself known to you, whether in real life or through art, the media, or elsewhere – pay attention. There are no coincidences. Your spirit animal serves as a guide, bringing you messages from the supernatural world to help guide you during your human experience on Earth.
