This is an illustration of the beautiful blind bison Helen who resides at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary in Oregon, USA, where she impresses everyone with her gentle, loving, maternal way of being. The minimalistic line-art drawing is part of my series Art Helping Animals, which means that I will be donating 50 per cent of the profits from this painting to Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary to support their work.
The illustration has been hand-drawn with ink on textured watercolour paper. A hand-finished golden circle made of real metal pigments highlights the magical beauty of Helen – and of farm animals as wonderful, sentient beings in general.
