Endangered Baby La Plata Dolphin Painting Art Large Sj Merwin

Endangered Series #3
Title:  Baby La Plata Dolphin 
Size: 16 X 20 on Stretched canvas

The baby dolphin died because people plucked her from the water so they could take selfies.  It happened in February 2016,  when a young dolphin died on the beach of Santa Teresita, after it was passed around so that that a large crowd of people could take selfies with it.

The La Plata dolphin is also called the Franciscan Dolphin. The unique characteristic of this dolphin is the proportion of its beak to the rest of the body.  It has the largest beak in proportion to body size of any crustacean.  If you are interested in this painting or some of my other paintings email me here

Endangered Series #2 - Cecil, Lion, Art Painting,

Endangered Series #2
Title: Cecil, the Lion
Size: 16 X 20 inches on stretched canvas

Cecil, from an endangered species. was killed by a trophy hunter and the world was outraged.  The estimate is that there are less than 30,000 Lions living in the wilds of Africa.  However the human population of the planet is now over 7,000,000,000 - yup that's 7 Billion and within 20 years estimates are that human population will be hovering around 10 Billion.  The human population pushes animals and their habit in such a way that we will continually see the loss of more animal species.  If you have interest in this painting or my other paintings please email me here.

Endangered Series #1 - Harambe, Silverback Gorilla by SJ Merwin Art, painting, animals


Title:  Endangered #1 ~ Harambe
Size: 16 X 20 inches on stretched canvas

Harambe was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo because a 4 year old climbed into his habitat.  There are less than 175,000 lowland Gorillas left in the world.  Endangered means that there is a great probability that we will lose the whole species of lowland gorilla as the genetic heritage of such a small population may not be viable in the long run.  Losing Harambe may have been a blow to the survival of the entire population of Lowland Gorilla.

Compare the small number of lowland Gorilla's under 175,000 to the increasing over population of humans which now numbers over 700,000,000,000 and will reach 10 Billion that's 10,000,000,000 in 24 years.  The number of humans with their need for food, water and resources is crowding out the other species of the earth.  A great article on human population is here.  It originally appeared in Psychology Today.

This is the first of a series of paintings of the endangered animals we are losing.  This series of paintings is a tribute to their spirits and, yes, to their souls.  Although many humans think the world was created only for them to plunder, the world also belongs to the animals who make their home here.    If you are interested in this painting or others that I have created send me an email.  To Send an Email Cllck Here

I say "No, he's not a Doodle, he is a Welsh Terrier."

"Is that a new breed," she asks.

"No, it's one of the oldest known breeds coming from the black and tan." I answer.
