Chief Monk Seal print
Chief Hawaiian monk seal is not interested in any of your guff; he’s much more interested in fish, and how many he can gobble up. The expression on this endangered seal’s face cracks us up: he has soft, sweet eyes and yet looks so very serious. This type of seal is one of the rarest marine mammals that you can (or more likely can’t find). They were hunted nearly to extinction in the 19th century and have been struggling since.
This print is from an original watercolor by Maggie Hurley, modified slightly through the wonders of technology. Printed on archival Epson Heavy Matte paper, the final image measures 8″ x 10″ on 8.5” x 11″ paper, leaving a border for framing. Each print is signed and titled.
Maggie Hurley uses watercolors, pencils, and digital media to create her whimsical art. Each piece seems to open the window into a new magical world-from tiny robots wandering in fields of dandelions, to the adventures of a wayward owl, to the hidden royalty of the animal world. Maggie finds inspiration in the way light bounces off skyscrapers, and in the views of clouds from airplane windows. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
