A recent trip to beautiful Nantucket and the lovely Whaling Museum is the inspiration behind this new print. I'm working on some related patterns for a collection—so stay tuned. Walking along the beach, we also came across a gray seal. It didn't move as we approached and we were able to get pretty close. Many phone calls later, the New England Aquarium assured me that it was most likely resting, and not injured or stranded. Apparently they can come onshore for up to two days. Who knew?
