Blaine Animal Hospital has new whale mural


Former Point Roberts resident Edward Buendia painted idyllic Pacific Northwest imagery on Blaine Animal Hospital’s garage doors earlier this summer. Veterinarian Christine Carlson commissioned Buendia for the new painting titled “Whale Tail” when she needed to replace garage doors that he originally painted in 1995. The mural became a landmark on Blaine Road over the years, Carlson said.

The new mural is similar to the previous one in that both feature a humpback whale tail emerging from water surrounded by mountains. Carlson said the new mural will be considered the baby whale of the one depicted in the original mural. 

Buendia used four colors for the garage and said he drew inspiration from mountains he has either traveled to or climbed.
