Watercolor painting of a Kestrel and old barn by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Barnyard Hunter

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 18″h x 24″w, 2004.

I did this painting of an American Kestrel perched on the rafters of a decaying barn in the Shasta Valley, Siskiyou County, CA. The barn has so much weathered character and the Kestrel seemed like a perfect match. The barn has since been removed, but it lives on in the numerous paintings I have done of it.

This painting won Best of Show, First Place, and People’s Choice Award in the ‘Celebration of Birds Exhibit’, 2005, Klamath Falls, Oregon.
