This seagull art print was inspired by my mother’s appreciation to a famous book in the 70’s, “Johnathan Livingstone Seagull”, by Richard Bach. Check it out!
The book is a fable of a seagull learning about life and flight, and a reflection regarding the search for perfection.
Since then, my involvement with seagulls has always been bucolic and lyric. Mostly for having been a surfer during those years, my relation, with nature, became intimate in Baleia Beach (SP, Brazil) where most of my best teenage moments happened. Seagulls are surfer’s companions much like dolphins in people’s imaginary.
Medium to large, gray or white, birds, they often carry black markings on the head and/or wings.
With screeching cries, determined, longish beaks, and webbed feet, gulls live typically near the seashore or in islands.
Taking live food, like crabs and small fish, or scavenging, most are ground-nesting carnivores, that have unhinging jaws allowing them to even consume larger prey.
They take an average of 2 to 4 year to reach adult age, and may live up to almost 50 years.
Living in large, dense and noisy colonies, Gulls are resourceful, inquisitive and intelligent birds, that show complex communication and social structure.
They use those capabilities both for protection and searching for prey and even showing primitive abilities in using tools.
Gulls are known to be peacefully adapted to the presence of mankind.
In my opinion, the flight of the Seagull is one of the most beautiful dances created by Nature. After lunch, between my 2 daily surfing sessions, I could stay watching them fly around, fishing for hours and hours. Their grace and freedom have always inspired me.
