497 & 498 Scenes from the Gulf

497. Under the Sea

498. SOLD Fishing Trip

Leann Webb is a compulsive doodler and part time cartoonist who grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. She has a life-long love for the beach, especially the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. When the news of the explosion of the Deep Water Horizon oil well reached her, she was saddened, both for the families of the 11 men who lost their lives, as well as the knowledge of how life in and along the Gulf will never be the same.
The drawing reflects how everyone, both man and beast, is affected by this disaster. Not only is the sea life compromised but also is the livelihood of the people who live along the gulf.

"Under the Sea" is done in color pencil on paper. "Fishing Trip" is done in acrylic on 16"x 20" canvas of a father and son fishing on the beach at Gulf Shores, AL. Little did Leann know when she painted this that this familiar sight wasn't going to be so familiar for long.
