Orcas at Deception Pass. I never saw the whales in Deception Pass, although a woman whose name I forget told me they often used to come in the old days to rub barnacles off in Penn Cove. Deception Pass is a spectacular area at the north end of Whidbey, which is in the left of the painting, and the south of Fidalgo Island on the right.

SKU: 354 Category:

Whidbey Island is on the left, Fidalgo on the right. I’m often asked if Orcas ever are in Deception Pass anymore. I don’t know and sort of doubt it. But here comes a sad “back-in-the-day” story from the curmudgeon I am. A longtime Whidbey resident told me they were there ’95. She said that was the first time they’b been back since the tragedies of 70-71, when many were captured and many were killed in a tragic drama that gripped Western Washington and grabbed headlines almost every day for a season. Prior to that, I was told, the Orcas used to regularly visit Penn Cove where they scraped barnacles and played. So consider Orcas at Deception Pass a deeply optimistic piece of art, depicting a return to the status quo ante for Orcas.
