...and the river turns red with migrating fish.
Some sockeye salmon urgently heading upstream to the place of their birth, to begin the cycle anew. Peahen wingfeather. I like how the subtle mottling along the edge of the feather looks so much like sunlight filtering through ripples on the water's surface. I used a slightly stylized version of salmon in this one. This will be available at the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage Center's art show during the Puyallup WA Spring Fair, Aprill 19 - 22.
