Animal Habitat Artwork : Anima – Biendl Farm & Barn (Shaw Island)

11″ x 17″ ink, pencil & paint on paper. 2016.

My Anima series explores the shape and form of nature in the Pacific Northwest.This original mixed media artwork on heavy watercolor paper showcases this heritage barn, located on Shaw island in the San Juans. I was able to spend a special day roaming just about every inch of this farm and learning it’s history from the current steward. This barn is visible from the ferry as it passes between Shaw and Crane islands.

This original artwork was commissioned by the San Juan County Fair.
