Welcome Home is an original painting by renown marine life artist John Jennings, that celebrates the return of frolicking whales and other sea life to Monterey Bay in 1990. Measuring 70" x 37", this stunning oil on canvas creation is executed in what the artist calls the "translume" technique, meaning that a totally different set of sea creatures and marine environment comes to life once the painting is illuminated with ultraviolet light.

What makes Welcome Home so interesting and valuable is that another version of it also exists as a mural on a building on Cannery Row! You may be already aware of this Monterey Bay mural... with similar whales and fish... that John Jennings painted in the summer of 1990. First came the oil on canvas, which was on display in the Monterey Bay Inn while Jennings labored on the mural outside.

Also included with the sale of this painting is a smaller artist proof on fine art paper (35" x 18") signed by Jennings with an additional pencil sketch in the margin. Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist will also be provided.

Welcome Home should truly come home. We feel it belongs in Monterey Bay. We have owned this painting and displayed it for almost 25 years in Southern California but are putting it up for sale now in the hopes that a buyer from the peninsula area would like to take ownership and display it.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for the right buyer who would love to bring back this painting and display it in the Monterey Bay area as it should be. For more information please contact us and I will be happy to provide more information and photos.
