The Barnacle Whale is an illustration by me, Ryan Fowler. A friend once told me of a kayak trip she was on in Alaska. As she kayaked across the water a large whale swam up next to her. He brought his huge eye to the surface and looked right at her and blinked before drifting deep into the dark water. That story was the inspiration for this piece. This whale is covered with barnacles, and not too happy about it.

This item is a ready-to-hang, premium gallery wrapped canvas. My illustration has been professionally wrapped by hand onto museum style 1.5" premium canvas framework. The artwork is created using the highest quality archival pigments on archival canvas, resulting in vibrant and saturated color and tones. I layer each piece with multiple coats of non-toxic varnish for a distinctive brush texture and sheen. Additional pigments are applied to the surface of the stretched canvas before the piece is sealed.

This canvas is:
- ready to hang
- signed and dated on the reverse side
- safe for kid's rooms
(no glass, made from non-toxic materials)

- dimensions are 9” x 12” x 1 ½” thick

Items ship within 7-10 business days. Please let me know if you need your purchase rushed for a gift, I will try my best to accommodate you – no extra charge – with the exception of any additional shipping fees I may incur.
