The Barnacle Whale by nativevermont

"A friend once told me of a kayak trip she was on in Alaska. As she kayaked across the water a big whale swam very near to her. He brought his huge eye to the surface and looked right at her and blinked before drifting deep below".
That story was the inspiration for this piece – an original collage of parchment paper, newsprint, and old paper (to create a vintage look), on quality cotton painter's canvas. Additional coloring and toning was added to the surface before it was sealed. Each piece is unique and is signed and dated by the artist.

I love your whale. Can you imagine paddling a canoe and see a whale close enough to see his eye blink!
