Mixed Media Watercolor, 11" x 14" framed to 16"x 20"
“Dad Salmon” is a bright, colorful, Coho salmon, bright red, of spawning age, who has muscled his way upstream, using every ounce of his tissue to reach the waters where he was born, to spawn. After living his whole life in the ocean, he navigated the vast waters of the Pacific, to the tiny stream or river where his life began. He’s reached the time of his final contribution in life- to reproduce and create the next generation of this beautiful, awe-inspiring, Herculean species. The details of this artwork include mixed-media scales of metallic and fluorescent ink over liquid watercolor on paper.
