This painting was created for an ex•tinc•tion wit•ness book project, titled Wail Song, featuring the monthly poems and essays. The background image behind the humpback whale is an outline of a whale skeleton, which was a shadow cast on a wall in a museum. The shadow of this huge animal cast a very large shadow, and made enough of an impression that I took photos of the shadow, which is what I used for this image.
