Pacific North West Salmon - Pewter and Acrylic

Pacific North West Salmon

Pacific North West Salmon  12" x 12" x 1"

Another artwork in my series of acrylic paintings with hand embossed pewter.

I have been developing a series of artwork to celebrate the North using pewter that I emboss free hand and sometimes acrylic gels and emulsions to translate the ice and snow.

This painting "Pacific Northwest Salmon" is on a specially prepared 1" cradled board with many layers of acrylic in the background. The embossing is hand done on top quality pewter that contains absolutely no lead. The patterns embossed on the fish are inspired by native pacific North West designs but are all my own. Textured accents are in silver leaf.

A beautiful statement piece! It is wired and ready to hang. The edges are painted black, but could be repainted white to go with those in the series that have snow. The artwork has been varnished to protect the pewter and the acrylic for years and years.

I can produce similar pieces with kayaks, inukshuks, polar bears much larger sizes such as 24"e; x 24"e;. Please contact me if interested.

This is a large original watercolor on heavy 300 lb Fabriano watercolor paper. I loved creating depth and layers in the forest floor and painting the contrast of colorful leaves against bark and stone.Autumn is my favorite season and nowhere is it more beautiful than in the woods. Enjoy the calm and beauty of the forest.

This painting is unframed and unmatted andt it will be shipped flat since it is on heavy watercolor paper. It has been painted with professional quality watercolor paints.
