this piece was inspired by Misty Copeland, the third ever black ballerina soloist (and first in two decades) to dance with the American Ballet Theater, where she has endured the cultural pressure associated with this role.  in this painting, she is riding gracefully, seemingly effortlessly on top an Orca whale.  these whales swim thousands of miles, and can live for up to a hundred years.

in the financial markets a “whale” client is a big get, a huge catch.  the painting was created to speak to everyone with a dream. when people tell you its impossible.  just keep going, and ride that killer whale all the way to the top of the stars!
