Wyland: Twenty-Five Years at Sea : Muralists naturally think big. But Wyland - arguably the world's best-known marine painter, whose images span thousands of square feet of walls, canvases, and sculpted forms - makes an impact far beyond the art world. Wyland combines his incredible talents with those of a dedicated team of educators, scientists, and environmentalists to truly change the way we view the planet. Wyland: 25 Years at Sea opens the door to Wyland's fascinating world of art and its power to make a difference in the earth's future. Through its pages we experience the wonder of nature as seen through the eyes of this extraordinary artist, while deepening our understanding of the importance of our environment and all creatures that share it. Like an artist's palette, this book mixes Wyland's breathtaking work with a narrative that reveals the man's personal world and his commitment to the earth. Woven throughout the whales, sea turtles, and ocean waves is the absorbing story of how Wyland grew from his Detroit roots to become a successful fine artist to his mission today of delivering a lasting, worldwide message of concern, hope, and needed action.
