Today, I decided to get back into making some realer art, by “realer” I mean physical, messy art! Getting your hands dirty! This art piece is half way between a painting and a drawing. It turned out to be at least partly to do with the yearly salmon run: where they go back to the same place they were born, to lay their eggs. I think it is amazing! Apparently they can recognise even a couple of drops of water in gallons and gallons of other water, from their home place and they follow that stream all the way back.

  1. What a creative photo you posted! It took me awhile to figure out the reflection. I also loved the close up of the fish…very interesting!

    • Thank you! I have been doing lots of studio work lately but find it hard to write about it too. I will post some more (hopefully) creative photo soon!
