"Returning To The Natal Home"
30" x 36" oil on 3/4" canvas with painted sides (no framing required). 5th fish painting in this series so far. #20005619 For Sale
My reference photo was taken from a highway bridge near Malakwa B.C. of the salmon spawning below. The fish were resting in the water cooled by the bridge's shadow. They would rest facing the current and then shoot ahead a few feet or when another salmon got in it's way. The water's current gave them an abstract look and feel.
